Code 128 Barcode Fonts
Code 128 Barcode Software (also referred to as GS1-128) is a high density, alphanumeric barcode commonly used for shipping labels, ID cards, USPS applications, and some medical applications. Code 128 is able to encode all 128 ASCII characters including upper and lower case letters, numbers, numerous symbols, control characters, and special functions. For 1D barcodes, Code 128 is generally the most compact (able to encode the most data in the smallest physical space). The amount of data is variable allowing the user to encode as much or as little data as is needed. Code 128 barcodes maintain a high level of data integrity with parity bits to verify each character and a check character to verify the data package as a whole.
- GS1-128 barcodes may be generated with this package by simply substituting the ASCII 202 character for the FNC1 when using the C128AUTO macro.
