PCL Bitmapped Bar Codes & More Font Set

This package contains a collection of PCL bitmapped LaserJet soft fonts for printing bar codes. These bar code soft fonts can be used with DOS, Unix, or AS/400 computers. They are not recommended for use in Windows (see our TrueType Bar Codes and More package for a Windows version). PCL bar code fonts are stored on your computers hard disk and must be sent to an HP LaserJet or compatible printer before they can be used.

Once these PCL fonts are sent to your printer, they will stay there until your LaserJet's power is turned off. To print a bar code, you send a PCL font selection command to your printer (our documentation explains these command sequences). Next, send your bar code data to the printer. Finally, you send a PCL command to your printer, switching it back to the normal font.

This set includes five of the most widely used bar code formats, plus OCR-A and OCR-B. These bar codes include bar code types: 2/5, 2/5 interleaved, 39, PostNet, and UPC-A. Bar code 2/5 is used to encode numeric data. Bar code 2/5 interleaved lets you encode very high density numeric data. Bar code 39 is one of the most commonly used bar codes and offers numeric, upper case ASCII, and some punctuation. PostNet bar code is used to print bar codes for U.S. Mail delivery. Finally, the UPC-A bar code is commonly used on groceries and products throughout North America.

The 2/5, 2/5 interleaved, and 39 bar codes come in four different heights and two different pitches. The PostNet font has a fixed height and width. UPC-A comes in two different heights, both with a fixed pitch. All fonts come in PCL LaserJet standard bitmapped soft font format.
