Barcode operator

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP

Note: Global Graphics does not guarantee that barcodes generated using this operator will be readable to any specified quality level. That's because the barcode generation and rendering process is only one factor in determining readability. The marking engine (e.g. inkjet heads), substrate, colorants, drying/curing or fusing and any post-processing are also important in this respect.

Industry best practices should be followed in setting sizes, colors and orientation on the print for maximum readability.

A new PS operator barcode has been introduced which takes a required dictionary as an argument.

Simple example:

            200 200 translate 0 0 moveto
            /DeviceCMYK setcolorspace
              /Symbology /eanx
              /Input (7432365+54321)
              /Foreground [ 0 0 0 1 ]
              /Background [ 0 0 0 0 ]
              /ShowText true
              /TextFont /Helvetica
              /TextColor [ 0 0 0 1 ]
              /TextSize 9
