in thread the proper way of barcode rendering/printing

at frist i appreciate that notepad.exe is not able to print graphix.
so there is no perl module that can create a barcode as plaintext? why it is not possible to print a html::barcode barcode to a regular printer? its based on "table" - is there an option to force that printing?

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

    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

        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?

    The best HTML renderers are arguably web browsers. Find out how to render and print an HTML page on your operating system if you insist on using the HTML representation of a barcode.

    Most likely, both, Internet Explorer and Firefox can be started from the command line to automatically print an HTML file without further interaction.
