       dmtxread - scan Data Matrix barcodes


       dmtxread [options] [FILE]...


       dmtxread  searches  the  named input FILEs (or standard input if no files are named or the
       filename "-" is given) for ECC200 Data Matrix barcodes, reads their contents,  and  writes
       the decoded messages to standard output.


       -c, --codewords
              Only  print  the codewords extracted from a Data Matrix, and not the actual decoded

       -e, --minimum-edge=N
              Pixel length of smallest expected edge in image.

       -E, --maximum-edge=N
              Pixel length of largest expected edge in image.

       -g, --gap=N
              Use scan grid with gap of N pixels (or less) between lines.

       -l, --list-formats
              List the supported input image formats.

       -m, --milliseconds=N
              Stop scan after N milliseconds (per image).

       -n, --newline
              Print a newline character at the end of decoded data.

       -p, --page=N
              Only scan Nth page of images.

       -q, --square-deviation=N
              Maximum deviation (degrees) from squareness between adjacent barcode sides. Default
              value  is  N=40, but N=10 is recommended for flat applications like faxes and other
              scanned documents. Barcode regions found with corners <(90-N) or  >(90+N)  will  be
              ignored by the decoder.

       -r, --resolution=N
              Decoding  resolution  in  dots per inch (DPI). Only used for vectorial input images
              such as SVG, PDF, etc... This option accepts a single argument (eg: 300) as well as
              horizontal and vertical resolutions (eg: 300x150). The default resolution is 72dpi.

       -s, --symbol-size=[asr|RxC]
              Only consider barcodes of specific size or shape.
                 a = All sizes     [default]
                 s = Only squares
                 r = Only rectangles
               RxC = Exactly this many rows and columns (10x10, 8x18, etc...)

       -t, --threshold=N
              Set  the  minimum  edge  threshold as a percentage of maximum. For example, an edge
              between a pure white and pure black pixel would have an  intensity  of  100.  Edges
              with  intensities  below  the  indicated  threshold will be ignored by the decoding
              process. Lowering the threshold will increase the amount of work to  be  done,  but
              may be necessary for low contrast or blurry images.

       -x, --x-range-min=N[%]
              Do not scan pixels to the left of pixel column N (or N%).

       -X, --x-range-max=N[%]
              Do not scan pixels to the right of pixel column N (or N%).

       -y, --y-range-min=N[%]
              Do not scan pixels below pixel row N (or N%).

       -Y, --y-range-max=N[%]
              Do not scan pixels above pixel row N (or N%).

       -C, --corrections-max=N
              Correct at most N errors per image (0 = correction disabled).

       -D, --diagnose
              Make copy of image with additional diagnostic data.

       -M, --mosaic (experimental)
              Interpret detected regions as Data Mosaic barcodes.

       -N, --stop-after=N
              Stop scanning after Nth barcode is returned.

       -P, --page-numbers
              Print each decoded message with its fax/tiff page number.

       -R, --corners
              Prefix the decoded message with the barcode's corner locations.

       -S, --shrink=N
              Internally  shrink  image by factor of N. Shrinking is accomplished by skipping N-1
              pixels at a time, often producing significantly faster scan times. It also improves
              scan  success  rate  for  images taken with poor camera focus provided the image is
              sufficiently large.

       -U, --unicode
              Print Extended ASCII characters in UTF-8 Unicode.

       -v, --verbose
              Use verbose messages.

       -V, --version
              Print program version information.

       --help Display this help message and quit.

       Exit status has following possible meanings:
          0  At least one barcode was found and decoded
          1  No barcodes were found
         >1  Error occurred that prevented command from executing normally
