Unfortunately this is completely off the base here. Cuneiform is a character recognition system. You may wish to google for http://www.google.ru/search?q=linux+barcode ...

:-)) barcodes ARE charecters, already then... thanks

OK, let's put it this way: unfortunately, Cuneiform does not recognize barcodes, although they ARE characters. Does it sound better?

letranger (uqbar-mail) said : #4

of course, it sounds much better, since your initial statement was just incorrect..

The point is clear now.

Look at zxing -- it's a java barcode recognition engine.
