Barcode Basics updated

Brian Dunning today released an updated version of its Barcode Basics for FileMaker. The software offers an easy way to create printable, scannable bar codes from FileMaker data. The software does not require any special fonts or plug-ins, and adds EAN-13, Barcode Basics in all four of the most common formats: Code 39, Code 128, EAN-13 and POSTNET. Code 39 is the most common barcode format, used by most handheld scanners. Code 128 supports the greatest number of characters, and most modern scanners can support the format. EAN-13--a superset of UPC-A--is used to identify products around the globe, and is often seen on product tags or boxes. POSTNET is the barcode format used by the U.S. Postal Service to encode ZIP codes and delivery point codes onto envelopes. Barcode Basics--priced at $100 or $300 for the developer version that permits redistribution--is available for FileMaker 5, 6, 7, and 8.
