Users may view the package's catalogue entry at http://mirror.ctan.org/help/Catalogue/entries/pst-barcode.html or browse the package's directory at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-barcode/ The catalogue entry will change (somewhat) overnight tonight (subject to mirroring delays).

pst-barcode – Print barcodes using PostScript

The pst-barcode package allows printing of barcodes, in a huge variety of formats, including quick-response (qr) codes (see documentation for details).

As a PSTricks package, the package requires pstricks. The package uses PostScript for calculating the bars. For PDF output use a multi-pass mechansism such as pst-pdf.
