LEADTOOLS Barcode C API Introduction

Summary

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 (for an example, refer to 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. Supported Barcode Symbologies include UPC, EAN, Code 39, Code 128, ITF (2 of 5), CodaBar, GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS14), QR, Data Matrix, PDF417, and Aztec.

Cloud Services

Does your application require document recognition or conversion, but its implementation language is preventing you from using LEADTOOLS directly? Consider using the LEADTOOLS Cloud Services Web API instead. It is a high-powered and scalable Web API. Its hassle-free interface can be used to integrate advanced OCR, barcode, MICR, and document conversion into any application.
