The barcode readers we use aren't os specific. They are
either keyboard wedges or serial devices. There are bunches
to choose from. The ones I have used are from Allen-Bradley
(relabeled), Compsee, and some noname box from Taiwan (came
from Tiger Direct).
There's no trick to using these things. If you have a program
looking for input in a field on a screen, you can use a keyboard
wedge to let folks scan for input. If you want direct input
into a noninteractive system, use the box with a serial port.
I use both. I even read the serial ones via network by connecting
them up to a terminal server device and using socket calls to
get to it.
All of our applications are in an industrial environment.
