Convert text strings to printed bars.

GNU barcode is a tool to convert text strings to printed bars. It supports a variety of standard code to represent the strings and creates postscript output. Features include:

  • available as both a library and a command line frontend (so you can include barcode printing in your application)
  • supports UPC, EAN, ISBN, CODE39, and other encoding standards
  • Postscript and encapsulated postscript output (other backends can be added as needed)
  • Accepts sizes and positions as inches, millimeters, and centimeters
  • Can create tables of barcodes (to print labels on sticker pages)
