It is a plugin that processes ISIS database files. I have never used it either, but I have no need to use it.

The Greenstone Wiki Plugins page says:

ISISPlug.pm ISIS database files

Running "pluginfo.pl ISISPlug" from the command line, the description says:

This plugin processes CDS/ISIS databases. For each CDS/ISIS database processed, three files must exist in the collection's import
folder: the Master file (.mst), the Field Definition Table (.fdt), and the Cross-Reference File (.xrf).

A quick Google'n and I found Unesco's CDS/ISIS page:


Hope this helps.
