It would be nice to add support for using plain marc text files as input in addition to the current marcXML. BibMatch can be extended to detect the input format and convert marc text to marcxml on-the-fly, in order to be used in matching. This could also work with output, providing marc text as output, if needed.

Currently there is a xmlmarc2textmarc library under BibEdit, and a mirrored version is underway.

Implemented and tested OK. I also added a quick fix to a bug with textmarc2xmlmarc utility.

Quick edit:
Plan to refactor the bugfix to textmarc2xmlmarc utility and to also add try/catch block on stdout reassignment in to make it a little safer.
