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.
