Barcode printing DBL/Linux

Barcode printing DBL/Linux

Barcode printing DBL/Linux

I'm using synergyde runtime 6.x.x, 7.x.x and 8.x.x for different customers on SCO Unix openserver 5.0.x, SuSelinux 9.x and Redhat linux 6.x etc. All the printjobs on all these platforms are being handled by dblpq and I want to keep it that way.

Here's the question: how can I add barcodes to existing documents that are printed on several different printers (i.e. HP printers, Oki printers, etc)? The documents presented to dblpq are already formatted with escape-sequences, controlling the number of characters per inch, adding a <cr> to all lines, printing bold etc. I don't want to use a barcodefont. I have looked at BARZ OUT PRO from unibar, but am not certain this is going to work. Is there anybody outhere with experience on barcodeprinting?


RE: Barcode printing DBL/Linux

BARZ OUT PRO from Unibar sounds like it should work.

Why not down load the free trial and see how it works
for your various customers.

I'm running SynergyDE/DBL on HP OpenVMS for different
customers. No software bar code options exist that run
under OpenVMS <:(
