How to insert a JPEG image in a C program

I need to insert a JPEG image in a C program to print every time the report is generated. The program is running on an AIX machine. Is there a way to insert the image (a barcode) to print at each of the top of the page.

hmm, this question is so simple and vage ...
.. I'd simply answer:

so what is the question beside that then?
I guess you need:
  1. open the jpeg file
  2. read its content
  3. convert the content to the proper format of your printer
  4. write converted data into your page as you need

I'm sorry if the question seemed vague, but here is exactly what I need to accomplish:

I have a JPEG image of a barcode that needs to print at the top of the 1st page every time this report is generated, usually via VSIFAX, but sometimes to a network printer.

Do you need to see the section of code for the top of the 1st page?
