Most barcode scanners are simply 'keyboard wedges'

by robo_dev In reply to Bar code scanner

Such that they are simply allowing fields to be filled without typing, so there is not any real software required to do this. It's not any different than handling keyboard input.

Barcodes are just fonts, so there's no magic there either....

Sorry, I mean a handheld computer device

by robo_dev In reply to More Clairification

When you say 'barcode scanner', I assume you mean the peripheral device that does that function.

What you mean is a handheld computing device that also has a barcode scanner. The most common ones are made by Symbol Technologies, Intermec, and several others. For example the Symbol PDT8146 or Intermec CK61.

It is more common for these to run Windows Mobile OS than Palm OS.

see (now owned by Motorola)

Symbol Developer Zone has Info about applications

Intermec Applications/software
