Is there anyway to support SSH tunneling through a MySQL DSN? I would like to open a database connection to remote host through Perl's DBI. The remote database is MySQL, but the server hosting the database does not allow outside connections. Instead the systems administrators suggest first

The WorldCat API is not yet in general release. It is presently being beta tested by invited developers, many of whom (if not all) are on this list. Thus the confusion. Sorry, but stay tuned. A good way to do that is to sign up on the WorldCat Developer's Network listserv. A link to the signup

[CODE4LIB] alpha characters used for field names

2008-06-25 Thread Eric Lease Morgan
Are alpha characters used for field names valid in MARC records? When we do dumps of MARC records our ILS often dumps them with FMT and CAT field names. So not only do I have glorious 246 fields and 100 fields but I also have CAT fields and FMT fields. Are these features of my ILS --

Eric, This is definitely not a feature of MARC but rather a feature of your local ILS (Aleph 500). Those are local fields for which you'd need to make a translation to a standard MARC field if you wanted to move that information to another system that is based on MARC. Steve On Wed, Jun 25,
