NAME
       pbmupc - create a Universal Product Code PBM image


SYNOPSIS
       pbmupc

       [-s1 | -s2] type manufacturer product


DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pbmupc  generates  an  image  of a Universal Product Code symbol.  The three arguments are: a one digit product
       type, a five digit manufacturer code, and a five digit product code.  For example, '0 72890 00011' is the  code
       for Heineken.

       As  presently configured, pbmupc produces an image 230 bits wide and 175 bits high.  The size can be altered by
       changing the defines at the beginning of the program, or by running the output through pamenlarge or  pamscale.


OPTIONS
       The -s1 and -s2 options select the style of UPC to generate.  The default, -s1, looks more or less like this:

        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
       0||12345||67890||5

       The other style, -s2, puts the product type digit higher up, and doesn't display the checksum digit:

        ||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
       0||||||||||||||||
        ||||||||||||||||
        ||12345||67890||
