Barcoder
« on: April 22, 2013, 12:50:00 pm »
Barcoder is a program (available for casio and nspire) that can get information of barcodes.
It's something simple but I think is nice (for geeks :P).


It currently supports the following types of bar codes:
►EAN/UCC-8
►UCC-12
►EAN/UCC-13
►EAN/UCC-14

From a barcode (of the above type) this program can "extract" the following information:
►Country*
►Manufacturer Code
►Item code

*Sometimes the country shown is not the country of origin of the product but the place where it is sold.

The idea is based on java application "barcoder" by blackstripstudios (http://blackstrip.ru/soft.php?softyp=java&lang=en&softid=2) for mobile phones. Currently this program contains all functions of the original program, except verification of valid/invalid barcodes.

Download for Prizm

Download Nspire version: attached.

Looks like a neat little program. :)
Next, we need a giant database so it'll find a picture as well and comparison of prices. j/k

the best would be to use wifi/internet and connect the calculator with a site/database (with API) of barcodes.
However most users do not have web on calc (including me) so it is not feasible.

Anyway, the idea of a database gave me a new idea for a project :)

Usually books have a special barcode that is not associated to any country.
Most books have barcode started with 978/979. If you put it in barcoder, it will identify "Country: books".

But in your case perhaps the book belongs to an American publisher or is the place where it is sold (main target).
