  Description     : Perl library to generate CODE 128 bar codes

 Barcode::Code128 generates bar codes using the CODE 128 symbology.  It
 can generate images in PNG or GIF format using the GD package, or it
 can generate a text string representing the barcode that you can
 render using some other technology if desired.
 The intended use of this module is to create a web page with a bar
 code on it, which can then be printed out and faxed or mailed to
 someone who will scan the bar code.  The application which spurred its
 creation was an expense report tool, where the employee submitting the
 report would print out the web page and staple the receipts to it, and
 the Accounts Payable clerk would scan the bar code to indicate that
 the receipts were received.
 The default settings for this module produce a large image that can
 safely be FAXed several times and still scanned easily.  If this
 requirement is not important you can generate smaller image using
 optional parameters.

Note: this module is needed for koha (ITP 389876). It will be maintained
within the Perl Debian Group.
