LEADTOOLS Barcode C API Introduction


The LEADTOOLS Barcode C API provides functions to detect, read, and write barcodes in images.

The API features a fast, highly accurate, and reliable barcode software engine that outperforms most hardware-supported barcode read products. Fast document scanners can maintain full speed while performing barcode recognition operations on-the-fly for document-indexing purposes.

Programmers can integrate this technology into their applications in just a few lines of code, see Barcode Tutorial. Use the toolkit to easily add barcode support for reading and writing over 100 different 1D and 2D barcode symbology types and sub-types, including UPC, EAN, Code 39, Code 128, ITF (2 of 5), CodaBar, GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS14), QR, Data Matrix, PDF417, and Aztec.
