Description Janusz Kaczmarek 2010-12-30 12:50:17 UTC
I have dug through C4::AuthoritiesMarc::BuildSummary and, if I understand well, what on-line help says on summary:

>> The summary contains an "ISBD" like description to explain how the entry must be shown in the result list. The syntax is :

    * [xxxFFFSyyy] where are up to 3 digits BEFORE the field, FFF the field number, S the subfield code, yyy up to 3 digits AFTER the field.
    * things outside [] are kept as is (including HTML)
    * repeatable fields are managed. <<

is relevant for UNIMARC authorities *ONLY*.  For MARC21 the content of the summary field, taken as string, will just precede the summary constructed by the function.  Am I right?  If so then I think this remark should be in the help file not to confuse users.

Hi Janusz, could you give an example we could use in the manual? I am not sure what xxx and yyy would be.
