in reply to barcode renders from script, but not executable

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "bare code"; however, I think that you were missing a few critical parts. Try this:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use GD::Barcode::QRcode; my $oGdBar = GD::Barcode::QRcode->new( 'QRcode', { Ecc => 'M', Version => 6, ModuleSize => 2, } ); print "PTN:", $oGdBar->{text}, ":", $oGdBar->barcode, "\n"; open OUT, '>', 'QRcode.png' or die $!; binmode OUT; print OUT $oGdBar->plot->png; close OUT; open OUT, '>', 'QRcode.txt'; print OUT $oGdBar->barcode(); close OUT; undef $oGdBar;

    copy and pasted your code. Works perfectly as a perl script, same as mine. But, when I make it an executable with perlapp it will only render a blank (bare) QR code. So making it an executable breaks the rendering of the actual barcode data. If I knew how to upload a .png I could show you what I mean.

Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
[LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
Discipulus is this the IT?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
