CODE 128 generation question ...

Postby brunger on Fri Mar 26, 2010 3:27 pm

I was wondering if anyone has already created (or knows where to get code already made) that would take an expression (like "HELLOWORLD") and convert it to the long binary string of 1's and 0's that includes a start character, the encoded data, the checksum, and the stop character. I'd prefer to see some code that isn't C++ but is like JavaScript or something simplistic. I'll be trying to convert it to something I can use for the project I'm working on ... I just would kinda like to take a look under the hood.

Thanks for any help that can be offered ...

Well, you might want to order Code128 spec. It has all the contents you need.

Wikipedia Code128 page has some links to free code in several languages. Do not know whether they actually work.
