skmoorthy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does anyone have a script that can generate barcode labels, specifically one that does the standard code39 generation, with postscript print? Thanks.

    Funny,
    we just had the same problem and solved it using TeX, since we we're already generating some TeX-documents from a perl script.

    We used this package: ftp://ftp.dante.de/pub/tex/fonts/barcodes/willadt/ and the result is very very nice. Furthermore it is easily achieved (once you got that package installed, which is not as easy as it could be).

    If you encounter problems with that package, contact me; maybe I can help.

    Yes, yes, it's not really a perlish answer, but it works very fine!

    Regards... Stefan

    Not to steal merlyn's thunder, but he has (an excellent, as always) column about exactly what you're asking here.
