Generate Barcode in PDF?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Andrew Edwards, Sep 13, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I am searching for a way to dynamically generate a barcode as part of
    a PDF.

    I have come across a number of older threads and discussions but no
    one seemed to confirm a tested working solution.

    I wondered if anyone had since tackled the problem?

    There are innumerable free implementations of barcode generation. I don't
    know of a wrapper around one of the libraries, but it should be pretty
    simple to implement. Perhaps this library would be a good start:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/zint

    Write a C extension and you're good to go. Once you have the output in some
    format, you should be able to turn it into a PDF one way or another (e.g.
    RMagick).
