You mean you want to interpret a graphics file as a barcode? AFAIK there's no software that does that, although it's possible one of the OCR packages has this as a hidden feature.

The only product I have ever heard of that does this is from here: http://www.allmypapers.com. You can download a demo version to see if it satisfies your requirements.

I would say I offered up "numerous" GOOD examples for consideration of the "pie", but am wondering, more so, what answer of mine does not do what the OP was looking for?

Sure - can you give any prove that any of them works in Unix? Because I saw nothing like this on the sites. But if you provide a link proving this, I will split the points

Points for me are secondary here... neither of us offered MUCH help (there was no followup by the OP). But the "solver" you chose... didn't have an application that runs on Unix, either!

-bpmurray's -first- reply is the MOST accurate (words of warning), but the recommendation of allmypapers.com yields this:
http://www.allmypapers.com/faq-22.htm
"Q:
 What operating systems do you support?
 A:
 Windows XP, NT, & 2000

-And my recommendations were NOT -much- better but company inquiry might result in a "compatible" solution:

http://www.irondo.com/solutions_business/integratiion.html (needs "additional" Windows machine but provides linkage to the data)
Solution One:
Unix/Linux applications can now access the grouped files. Their file name represents the transaction ID (barcode value), enabling the application to update its indices and database records.
Solution Two:
The "Barcode Reporting" profile of the iRondo provides a complete log of every barcode on every image page in a CSV file format, that can easily be uploaded into the workflow application to let it make its own decisions with respect to the image file disposition.
