in thread the proper way of barcode rendering/printing

so there is no perl module that can create a barcode as plaintext?

Barcodes are not plaintext

why it is not possible to print a html::barcode barcode to a regular printer?

Not printing backgrounds is an ink saving feature of browsers , learn to work yours ;)

    Barcodes are not plaintext
    but they can be. im sure that i can send a plaintext as a chain of command to the printer. and the printer makes out of it a barcode. but im not sure how this commandline should look like.

    4sure => havent thought about the background ink saving feature. sounds good to me ;-) probably im able to disable it :-D

    $perlig =~ s/pec/cep/g if 'errors expected';

      You are talking about postscript. Perhaps you can create a Postscript page that has the drawing commands to have the barcode, and send it to your printer?
