Subject [greenstone-devel] Hierarchical AZList classifier
I have a collection with about 300,000 bib records from marcxml. I have
modifies the MARCXML plugin for this collection to add vertical bars("|")
between each of the subfields in the MARC 650 field which I map to Subject.
This gives me the ability to use the Hierarchy classifier on Subject.

As there are so many records, the hierarchy list goes on forever. I would like
to have an A-Z list for the top level of the hierarchy and then display the
hierarchy when I select a particular top level subject. I haven't seen any
classifier that can do this. Is it possible? has anyone written this type of
classifier?

Thanks in advance.
