barcode - a standalone program to convert text strings to printed bars
barcode [[-b - | string] | [-i - | input_file]] [-e encoding] [-o - | outfile] [ other- flags ]
This manual page documents briefly the barcode command as provided by barcode package. GNU barcode is a standalone program that converts text strings to printed bars. It is able to read user supplied strings from the command line or a data file (standard input by default) and encode all of them.
barcode accepts the following options: --help or -h Print a usage summary and exit. -i <arg> Specify input file (strings to encode), default is stdin -o <arg> Specify output file, default is stdout -b <arg> Specify string to encode (use input file if missing) -e <arg> Specify encoding type (default is best fit for first string) -u <arg> Specify unit to be used ("mm", "in", ...). This option is used to decode -g, -t and -p. -g <arg> Specify geometry on the page: [<wid>x<hei>][+<margin>+<margin>] -t <arg> Specify table geometry: <cols>x<lines>[+<margin>+<margin>] -m <arg> Specify internal margin for each item in a table: <xm>[,<ym>] -n Be "numeric": avoid printing text along with the bars -c no Checksum character, if the chosen encoding allows it -E Print one code as eps file (default: multi-page ps) -S Print one code as svg file (default: multi-page ps) -P Create PCL output instead of postscript -p <arg> Specify page size. Please refer to texinfo doc for more information. -s Use streaming mode. Please refer to texinfo doc for more information.
The program encodes text strings passed either on the command line (with -b) or retrieved from standard input. The text representation is interpreted according to certain rules. Please refer to texinfo doc as described below for detail introduction. To get a list of supported encoding type names, please call the program with "-h" option.
