dbconv (DB Convert) utility

dbconv is a Perl script designed to merge the data in the pre-CDROM#8 groups and collection tab-delimited files into CSV tables described in the collmgr documentation section. These new tables are CSV tables that are then accessible by collmgr and the middleware through the Perl DBI. The tables will reside in the directory $DLXSROOT/misc/db. All institutions that have been running DLXS and using colldb and the groups file will need to run dbconv to get their data from the colldb and groups files into the CSV tables that collmgr and the middleware will use. To run it, just enter dbconv from the command line in $DLXSROOT/bin/db.
