NAME

       pbmupc - create a Universal Product Code PBM image



SYNOPSIS

       pbmupc

       [-s1 | -s2]

       type manufacturer product



DESCRIPTION

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       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  pnmenlarge
       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||
