The bib1_to_dces.cfg file is used to map bib1 attribute codes
to metadata elements. It can be placed in the etc folder for
each collection and/or for the whole Greenstone instance. the
format is "code metadata\n". For example, if you have an
element named "Title", you would have a line like:

4 Title

Note that find commands without an attribute spec, such as
"find nitk", should still work without the bib1_to_dces.cfg
file and return records if they contain the search form.
The scan command also doesn't depend on bib1_to_dces.cfg
but is, as far as I can tell, broken in the GSDL z3950 server.

If you aren't getting records returned for searches without
an attribute spec maybe you didn't build your collections
with MGPP? This is required for the z3950 server and if you
don't you will see a message like this when the server starts:

Warning: Did not find indexfieldmap in build.cfg for demo
