meta method and the
isbn_meta script sometimes give a wrong result
(this is due to errors on the chosen service), in alternative you could
try one of the others services.
isbntools works internally with unicode, however this doesn’t
solve errors of lost information due to bad encode/decode at the origin!
- Periodically, agencies, issue new blocks of ISBNs. The
range of these blocks is on a database that
mask uses. So it could happen,
if you have a version of
isbntools that is too old,
mask doesn’t work for
valid (recent) issued ISBNs. The solution? Update isbntools often!
- Calls to metadata services are cached by default. If you don’t want this
feature, just enter
isbn_conf setopt cache no. If by any reason you need
to clear the cache, just enter
Any issue that you would like to report, please do it at github
or at stackoverflow with tag isbntools.
