Barcode CGI is a web application that can generate barcodes.
A CGI (Common Gateway Interface) Application is an application that a WWW server can execute. The easiest way to create barcodes on your web server is to use a CGI application that generates barcodes. It is enough to install just one executable file on the server. Embedding a barcode into an HTML page is as easy as using IMG tags.
Our CGI applications are written in C++ and are executable files, which ensures higher speed and lower load for the web server. You can use our CGI applications both on the Windows platform and on Linux with either IIS or Apache servers.
Our barcode CGI generators understand both GET and POST requests.
Using the CGI application:
Install the CGI application.
You can use this application right after that. Enter the address of your barcode CGI application into the browser address bar and you should see the barcode image.
You can specify parameters to customize the barcode. For example, use the data parameter to encode the string "HelloWorld" in DataMatrix.
See the corresponding description for more detailed information about the parameters of the CGI application (click CGI in the menu to the left and then, for example, click DataMatrix).
You can use the barcode CGI generator in an IMG tag of your HTML page.

Installing the CGI application on a Linux (Apache) server:
Download the necessary CGI application from our site:
Upload the CGI application in the binary mode to your server (for example, to the cgi-bin directory).
Set the execution permission (CHMOD) to 755, for example.
You can use the barcode CGI generator right after that.
