pbmupc


SYNOPSIS
       pbmupc [-s1|-s2] type manufac product

DESCRIPTION
       Generates  a Universal Product Code symbol.  The three arguments are: a
       one digit product type, a five digit  manufacturer  code,  and  a  five
       digit  product  code.   For  example,  "0  72890 00011" is the code for
       Heineken.

       As presently configured, pbmupc produces a bitmap 230 bits wide and 175
       bits  high.   The  size  can  be altered by changing the defines at the
       beginning of the program, or by running the output  through  pnmenlarge
       or pnmscale.

OPTIONS
       The  -s1  and  -s2  flags  select  the  style  of UPC to generate.  The
       default, -s1, looks more or less like this:
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
       0||12345||67890||5
       The other style, -s2, puts  the  product  type  digit  higher  up,  and
       doesn't display the checksum digit:
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
       0||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||12345||67890||
