NAME

       Barcode::ZBar::Image - image object to scan for bar codes

SYNOPSIS

           use Barcode::ZBar;

           my $image = Barcode::ZBar::Image->new();
           $image->set_format('422P');
           $image->set_size(114, 80);
           $image->set_data($raw_bits);

           my @symbols = $image->get_symbols();

DESCRIPTION

       Barcode::ZBar::Image is used to pass images to the bar code scanner.  It wraps raw image
       data with the meta-data required to interpret it (size, pixel format, etc)

   Image Formats
       Image data formats are represented by (relatively) standard "Four Character Codes"
       (fourcc), represented by four character strings in Perl.  A list of supported formats is
       available on the project wiki.

       Examples:

       · 'GREY' - single 8bpp intensity plane

       · 'BGR3' - 24bpp packed RGB component format

       · 'YUYV' - 12bpp packed luminance/chrominance (YCbCr) format

REFERENCE

   Methods
       new()
           Create a new Barcode::ZBar::Image object.  The size, pixel format and data must be
           defined before the object may be used.

       get_format()
       set_format(format)
           Return/specify the fourcc code corresponding to the image pixel format.

       get_sequence()
       set_sequence(seq_num)
           Return/specify the video frame or page number associated with the image.

       get_size()
       set_size(width, height)
           Return/specify the (width, height) image size tuple.

       get_data()
       set_data(raw)
           Return/specify the raw image data as a binary string.

       get_symbols()
           Return a list of scanned Barcode::ZBar::Symbol results attached to this image.

       convert(format)
           Return a new Barcode::ZBar::Image object converted to the indicated fourcc format.
           Returns "undef" if the conversion is not supported.  Conversion complexity ranges from
           CPU intensive to trivial depending on the formats involved.  Note that only a few
           conversions retain color information.
