Here's mine:

   a$="ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789 -$%./+*"
30 INPUT "Phrase: ";p$:
   x=0,p$="*"+UP$ p$+"*",l=LEN p$
40 FOR f=1 TO l:
      c=POS(p$(f),a$):
      IF c=0 THEN
         PRINT "Error in input": STOP
50    d=a(c):
      FOR g=9 TO 0:
         b=IIF(d & (1 SHL g)<>0,3,1):
         RECTANGLE INK 8*ODD g;x,0 TO x+b,22 FILL:
         x+=b+1:
      NEXT g:
      x+=2:
   NEXT f
60 PRINT MOVE (x-(l*16))/2,16;SCALE 2,2;p$

Did it for a BASIC challenge in a facebook group a while ago.

Hello, ZXDunny.

What type of barcode does your program generate? It's not code 39.

Yes it is.

Edit: One small error -

Line 50, change FOR G=9 TO 0 and the EVEN should be ODD. Then the characters will be correct.

I'm sorry, but it still doesn't work well. By entering "ABC 123", I get as a result the wrong barcode shown below. Compare this with a specialised website.

This is your code adapted to Yabasic:

I'm afraid that you've got the conversion from SpecBAS to yabasic wrong. Here's what I get in SpecBAS:



So your bit decoding is likely at fault. Also, that site is either wrong, or wikipedia is wrong - SpecBAS's bars are identical to the wikipedia article at

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_39

In particular, this image:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fd/Free_3_of_9_%28Code_39_barcode%29.svg

Uses character bars that are identical to the ones SpecBAS has encoded. Which site is actually correct is left as an exercise for the reader.


Edit: Aha, there is indeed a small bug left in there - the gap between letters in SpecBAS is too large. So, remove the line "x+=2" as so:

Code: [Select]
10 REM Code 39 Barcode generator
20 DIM a=265,73,328,25,280,88,13,268,76,28,259,67,322,19,274,82,7,262,70,22,385,193,448,145,400,208,52,289,97,352,49,304,112,37,292,100,196,133,168,42,388,162,138,148:
   a$="ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789 -$%./+*"
30 INPUT "Phrase: ";p$:
   x=0,p$="*"+UP$ p$+"*",l=LEN p$
40 FOR f=1 TO l:
      c=POS(p$(f),a$):
      IF c=0 THEN
         PRINT "Error in input": STOP
50    d=a(c):
      FOR g=9 TO 0:
         b=IIF(d & (1 SHL g)<>0,3,1):
         RECTANGLE INK 8*ODD g;x,0 TO x+b,22 FILL:
         x+=b+1:
      NEXT g:
   NEXT f
60 PRINT MOVE (x-(l*16))/2,16;SCALE 2,2;p$

And we get this image:



Which matches your version pretty well indeed. Many thanks for that!

I've gone over my code several times, but I can't see the error. However, certainly now the result obtained by your program is correct. Glad I could help.
