Barcodes

Barcode generators have been a topic on the Perl4Lib discussion list recently.
KBarcode is a barcode and label printing application for KDE 3. It can be used to print every thing from simple business cards up to complex labels with several barcodes (e.g. article descriptions).

KBarcode comes with an easy to use WYSIWYG label designer, a setup wizard, batch import of labels (directly from the delivery note), thousands of predefined labels, database management tools and translations in many languages. Even printing more than 10.000 labels in one go is no problem for KBarcode.

Additionally it is a simply xbarcode replacement for the creation of barcodes. All major types of barcodes like EAN, UPC, CODE39 and ISBN are supported.

Another is available on-line. It makes 1-30 Codabar barcodes at a time, given the 5-digit prefix and what follows it.
