Z39.50 Class

Hi, all!

I have been working on library MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) records, and I’m trying to develop an application that can import MARC records from another library’s catalog. The current library standard is Z39.50 – see the Wikipedia link below. Z39.50 predates the internet, and it is definitely not XML. But the integrated library systems (ILS), i.e., catalogs, still maintain it since it is so ubiquitous.

That issue aside, is there a class of Z39.50 around? I have seen Z39.50 classes in GitHub, but I’m trying to avoid translating from C(++) or JavaScript to Xojo.

Many thanks.
