How to find the Barcode type ?

How to find the Barcode type ?


Is there a way to find out the type of a barcode by seeing it? I have a program which is printing barcode. But I dont know the type of barcode it is using.

What all things I know about this are,

1.It is calulating the 'Check digit' in 'Modulo10'.
  ie, if P=[(Sum of odd digits)x3+(Sum of even digits)]/10,
      Check Digit=10-P
2.It uses the special characters while encoding as follows

0 - )
1 - !
2 - @
3 - #
4 - $
5 - %   It uses 's' as start and '>' as stop guards.
6 - u
7 - &
8 - *
9 - (

Can someone help me to find out the type of barcode used in this program?

Thanking you in advance,

RE: How to find the Barcode type ?

I need to identify the specific barcode type, currently printed using Xerox's printer language (XES), so that it can be replicated using a different printer language (PCL). I just have the image version of the barcode which I can send to whoever could provide some help

It should be easy to tell from the barcode.
