[librecat-dev] MARC21 beginner question

There are several ways:

$ catmandu convert Null --fix 'marc_add(100,ind1:1,a:"Surname, Given")' to MARC

$ echo '000000000 1001  L $$aSurname, Given’ | catmandu convert MARC --type ALEPHSEQ to MARC

The problem is that the MARC importers we use currently can’t handle MARC fragments except for the ALEPHSEQ version. Each of them expect a complete MARC record with at least a leader a control field and all that.  I guess the Catmandu Fix in my first example is the simplest route. Or, we should need to create a new LOC serialization importer.
