DESCRIPTION

SVG::Barcode::DataMatrix is a generator for SVG based Data Matrix barcodes.

FUNCTIONS

plot_datamatrix

    use SVG::Barcode::DataMatrix 'plot_datamatrix';

    $svg = plot_datamatrix($text, %params);

Returns a Data Matrix using the provided text and parameters.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

    $datamatrix = SVG::Barcode::DataMatrix->new;            # create with defaults
    $datamatrix = SVG::Barcode::DataMatrix->new(%params);

Creates a new Data Matrix plotter. Inherited from SVG::Barcode.

METHODS

plot

    $svg = $datamatrix->plot($text);

Creates a SVG code. Inherited from SVG::Barcode.

PARAMETERS

Inherited from SVG::Barcode: background, class, foreground, height, id, margin, scale, width.

dotsize

    $value      = $datamatrix->dotsize;
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->dotsize($newvalue);
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->dotsize('');          # 1

Getter and setter for the size of the dots. Default 1.

encoding_mode

    $value      = $datamatrix->encoding_mode;
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->encoding_mode($newvalue);
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->encoding_mode('');          # AUTO

Getter and setter for the encoding mode. One of AUTO, ASCII, C40, TEXT, BASE256, or NONE. Default AUTO.

process_tilde

    $value      = $datamatrix->process_tilde;
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->process_tilde($newvalue);
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->process_tilde('');          # 0

Getter and setter for the tilde flag. If set to 1 the tilde character ~ is being used to recognize special characters. Default 0.

size

    $value      = $datamatrix->size;
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->size($newvalue);
    $datamatrix = $datamatrix->size('');          # AUTO

Getter and setter for the module size of the matrix. height x width, one of AUTO, 10x10, 12x12, 14x14, 16x16, 18x18, 20x20, 22x22, 24x24, 26x26, 32x32, 36x36, 40x40, 44x44, 48x48, 52x52, 64x64, 72x72, 80x80, 88x88, 96x96, 104x104, 120x120, 132x132, 144x144, 8x18, 8x32, 12x26, 12x36, 16x36, 16x48.
