Linear Barcode Fonts

Codabar is linear barcode symbology which is introduced in 1972. It is also known as Codeabar, Ames Code, NW-7, Monarch, Code 2 of 7, Rationalized Codabar, ANSI/AIM BC3-1995 or USD-4. Codabar barcode was developed for use in a variety of non-retail applications such as libraries, shipping, and the medical industry.
Code 11
Code 11 is a barcode symbology developed by Intermec in 1977. Primarily Code 11 is used in telecommunications. The symbol can encode any length string consisting of the digits 0-9 and the dash character (-). One or more modulo-11 check digit(s) can be included.
Code 39
Code 39, first alpha-numeric symbology to be introduced is widely used in non-retail industry. It is the standard bar code used by the United States Department of Defense, and is also used by the Health Industry Bar Code Council (HIBCC).
Both the Code 39 - Regular and the Code 39 - Full ASCII bar code font symbologies contain the same 43 character set, as well as the same start and stop characters However, Code 39 - Full ASCII uses special two-character combinations from the 43 character set to allow for the representation of all 128 ASCII characters.
Code 93 is one of the most popular linear barcode symbology developed in 1982 by Intermec Corporation. Code 93 encodes each character using 6 elements packed into 9 modules. The code encoded within code 93 is as follows: a start character, encoded message, first modulo-47 check character “C”, second modulo-47 check character “K”, stop character and termination bar.
Code 128 includes 107 symbols: 103 data symbols, 3 start codes, and 1 stop code. To represent all 128 ASCII values, there are three code sets (A, B, C), which can be mixed within a single barcode (by using codes 98 and 99 in code sets A and B, 100 in code sets A and C and 101 in code sets B and C to switch between them.
Data bar Code 128 Set A is one of the most popular 2D barcode font symbology. It is a very high density barcode that supports capital letters, numeric values, control codes and punctuation. Data bar Code 128 Set A is widely implemented in many applications including for inventory and tracking purpose.
Code set B is developed for alphanumeric data that has both lower case letters and uppercase letters in it. Code 128 set B symbology can be used for most of the characters within the standard lower 128 ASCII table. This bar symbology can handle most input data. The Code 128 set B start bar has its own check digit calculation value assigned to it.
Code 128 barcode symbology is used for alphanumeric or numeric barcodes. Data bar Code-128 barcode contains a checksum digit for verification purpose. Code 128 SET C includes only numeric data. 00-99 (encodes each two digits with one code) and FNC1. Code 128 has three types of sets i.e. Code Set A, Code Set B and Code set C.
EAN (European Article Number) EAN-8 code and used for small packages where an EAN-13 barcode would be too large. An EAN-8 number contains 7 digits of message plus 1 check digit. The first two or three digits identify the numbering authority; the remaining 4 or 5 digits identify the product.
EAN-13 was implemented by the International Article Numbering Association (EAN) in Europe, based upon the UPC-A standard. EAN-13 is a superset of UPC-A.
Industrial 2 of 5 is linear barcode symbology in which all the information is encoded within the width of the bars. The spaces in the barcode exist only to separate the bars themselves. Industrial 2 of 5 only uses bar width to encode the data.
