This gem provides functionality for format identification and conversion. Converters may rely on the presence of 3rd party software, so read the class documentation carefully for the converters you want to use.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'libis-format'

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install libis-format
