SYNOPSIS
pbmupc

[-s1 | -s2] type manufacturer product


DESCRIPTION
This program is part of Netpbm.

pbmupc generates an image of a Universal Product Code symbol. The
three arguments are: a one digit product type, a five digit manufac-
turer code, and a five digit product code. For example, '0 72890
00011' is the code for Heineken.

As presently configured, pbmupc produces an image 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 pamenlarge
or pamscale.


OPTIONS
The -s1 and -s2 options 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||
