RE: Seeking Linux drivers and hardware for Barcode readers

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.
