In addition to the suggestion from Joshua Ferraro, I'd like to point out
that example configurations for plain old usmarc records are found in
the example and test directories of the source tarballs.
Have a look at for example the tested and build tarballs at
(NB: our new release version 2.0.0 will soon be found there as
pre-release. Have some days patience ..)
and have a look into the following configurations:
tab/usmarc.abs # simple usmarc filter, use as starting point
tab/danmarc.abs # danish variation, quite extensive, can be used
# as inspiration (but do not copy frome these, as
# Danes use the fields differently)
tab/marc21.abs # another syntax again
test/usmarc/ # test setup using the usmarc configuration files
examples/marc21 # example setup for marc21
This might get you started on high speed ..
