Perl module for bidirectional MARC-8 <-> Unicode conversion

MARC::Charset allows you to turn MARC-8 encoded strings into UTF-8 strings.

MARC-8 is a single byte character encoding that predates unicode, and allows you to put non-Roman scripts in MARC bibliographic records.

The MARC21 standard now supports encoding character data in Unicode, specifically the UCS Transformation Formats-8 (UTF-8). Unicode notwithstanding, libraries still have a wealth of data encoded using MARC-8. Yet, some new data formats such as XML require that characters are encoded using Unicode. In order to facilitate conversion the Library of Congress graciously published character mappings to enable the conversion of MARC-8 data to Unicode.
