#include "ltbar.h"

L_LTBAR_API L_INT L_BarCodeGetDuplicated(pBarCodeDataItem)

Returns the index of the first barcode that is a duplicate of the specified barcode.

Parameters

pBARCODEDATA pBarCodeDataItem

Pointer to the BARCODEDATA structure that contains barcode information.

Returns

Value Meaning
>= 0 The index of the duplicated barcode.
< 0 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

LEADTOOLS provides a number of functions to let you work with duplicated barcodes. They let you:

To determine whether a barcode is duplicated, use the L_BarCodeIsDuplicated function. If a barcode is duplicated, L_BarCodeGetDuplicated will return the index of the first barcode in the array after the specified barcode, which is a duplicate of the specified barcode.

If you know the index of a barcode within an array, you can get the index of the first duplicate of the specified barcode using L_BarCodeGetFirstDuplicated. Use the L_BarCodeGetNextDuplicated to get the next instance of a duplicated barcode.

Although no function is included to tell you the number of different sets of barcodes that are duplicated, you can easily program this by using the following code:

L_INT i, j, nCount; 
L_BOOL * pbVisited = (L_BOOL *)malloc(pBarCodeData->nTotalCount*sizeof(L_BOOL)); 
memset(pbVisited, 0, pBarCodeData->nTotalCount*sizeof(L_BOOL)); 
nCount = 0; 
for (i=0; i<pBarCodeData->nTotalCount; i++) 
{ 
   if(pbVisited[i]) 
      continue; 
   pbVisited[i] = TRUE; 
   nCount++; 
   j = i; 
   while(pBarCodeData[j].nIndexDuplicate != -1) 
   { 
      j = pBarCodeData[j].nIndexDuplicate; 
      pbVisited[j] = TRUE; 
   } 
} 
free(pbVisited); 

After this code is executed, nCount will contain the number of different sets of barcodes.
