Hello koha,

 I published small tool to convert old db (MAK, ISIS, BiblioInfo) to
 xml marc format for KOHA 2.x.
 I thought this may be helpful for other users of Koha.
 Please follow the link to obtain a php script:


# uniwkonwert.php <src_file> <dst_file> narodowa

# uniwkonwert.php <src_file> <dst_file> teologia

# uniwkonwert.php <db_api:db_host:db_name:db_login:db_pass> <dst_file> biblczas
BiblioInfo conversion from  indirect conversion in MySQL tables.

# uniwkonwert.php <src_file> none checkchar
