Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript is, as the name clearly shows, a barcode generator for level 2 Postscript. A barcode is created according to the user’s specifications by the ‘postscript interpreter’, for example a printer or Ghostscript. The program supports various formats, such as code 128, isbn-13/10, maxi code, pdf417 and even kix, which is delivered by TNT Post used. For more information, we refer you to this quick guide and a web-based frontend is on this page to admire. Terry Burton has released a new version of Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript with 2009-05-15 as the version number. The list of changes since the previous entry in the Meuktracker looks like this:
A byte-mode-only autoencoder was added to the qrcode encoder to simplify the use of the qrcode encoder for common tasks.
An ASCII-mode-only autoencoder was added to the datamatrix encoder to simplify the use of the datamatrix encoder for common tasks.
Update the descriptions of the RSS symbologies to GS1 DataBar.
A textgaps option was added to adjust the inter-character gap in non-default text alignment modes for linear barcodes.
A justify mode was added to the textxalign option in linear barcodes.
The encoders were amended to automatically invoke the appropriate renderer.
The dispatcher procedure was removed.
A dontdraw option was added to each encoder to suppress automatic rendering.
The encoders were reordered by their dependancy chain and references to dependant procedures were changed to use immediately evaluated name syntax.
Minor fixups were made to the addon positioning.
The samples were amended to demonstrate the new dict option passing mechanism and alttext option.
The EAN-5 and EAN-2 addon encoders were folded into the EAN, UPC and ISBN encoders.
