Printing control characters in bar code
Posted on 2006-03-25
How can I print control characters such as Record separator (RS), Group separator (GS), EOT into a barcode, so when read those chars will be used by some software for their own evil purposes??
I have not figured out how to actually get them to print, for example I try to convert a decimal 29 to ascii (↔) but all I get is a " ? ". I guess the problem is the control char is being executed at the time i convert it to ascii, or press " ^\ " , etc, so all i get back when reading that barcode are ???s instead.
I have a sample barcode that, when read displays something like " [)> ▲06↔ ... "
my own printed label will read: " [)>?06? ... "
In the best cases I have managed to print blank squares instead of "?"... and thats it.
Thanks for your help
