Bug#347267: ITP: iec16022 -- GPL licensed program to generate datamatrix/semacode 2d barcodes

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jan Luebbe <jluebbe@lasnet.de>

* Package name    : iec16022
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Stefan Schmidt <stefan@datenfreihafen.org>
* URL             : http://www.datenfreihafen.org/projects/iec16022.html
* License         : GPL
  Description     : iec16022 is a program to generate datamatrix/semacode 2d barcodes

The program generates a 2d datamatrix/semacode barcode from a
parameter or from a file and produces output in various formats (png,
eps, ascii-art).

http://www.semapedia.org/ for example uses semacode tags to create
real-world "links" to wikipedia articles.

The code was originally written by Andrews & Arnold Ltd and placed under
the GPL (see http://aa.gg/free/). The statement on the website is somewhat
ambigous, but Stefan Schmit contacted the original author and obtained
explicit authorization to continue development under the GPL. He has
since taken over the development.
