MarcEdit 5.0 Update

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

I’ve posted an update to correct a problem in one of the older MARCEngine function.  The Split tool was defined to ignore character encoding and simply read bytes using the default windows character encoding, which in .NET 1.1 was codepage 1252.  In one of the .NET updates/patches, this behavior has changed.  Someone sent me a message letting me know that some bytes were not being read correctly.  I looked at it and sure enough, that’s the case.  Fortunately, this problem only affected the split utility because my habit has been to specify character encoding because of the differences when running MarcEdit on Linux under MONO.  Anyway, while I had the source open, I did a little bit of interface work as well.

As always, downloads are available from: MarcEdit50_Setup.exe
