Barkix version 1.02 Hans Harder (

Barcode generator for PCL without the need for fontcartridges

This program will generate pcl commands for drawing the lines of a barcode currently it supports: code 3 of 9 and KIX postal barcode (Dutch KPN)

The program will scan the textlines for input starting with an <&. and which ends with > (the . specifies an action)

syntax:   <&[<scale>]<action>.....>
         B = Replaced by a horizontal code39 barcode
         b = Replaced by a vertical code39 barcode

         S = streetname, needed for KIX code (contents is preserved)
         P = postalcode, needed for KIX code (contents is preserved)
         K = Replaced by a KIX barcode 
         k = Replaced by a readable KIX code

     Option: <scale> print barcode/kixcode with scale/10.0
            example <&15B1234567>   will use a 1.5 scale barcode

     Remark: Barcode will only be generated when the has been started in 
             hp mode (barkix -hp), else it will replace the contents with spaces

Example code39 barcodes:

Vertical and horizontal barcodes can be generated:

     A <&bA010804>      Item 123-4567
     0                  <&B1234567> 
     0                                    Loc. A010804 (scale 1.5)
     8                                    <&15BA010804>

Examples KIX code:

     The program wil scan the streetname en city code for the information
     needed to make KIX code

     Company name
     <&SDutchstreet 10                >
     <&P1234 PR  Someplace            >
     <&K        kix barcode           >

     kixcode = [<&k   ascii kixcode   >]

Or with an addresslist the kixcode can be generated, like:

custno;Name  ;<&Sstreetname 24 a-b   >;<&P1234 AB  city>;<&k            >
custno;Name  ;<&Sstreetname 1001abc  >;<&P5678 BC  city>;<&k            >
custno;Name  ;<&Sstreetname 4a       >;<&P1234 DE  city>;<&k            >
