This module allows you to generate QR Code with Imager. This module use libqrencode '2.0.0' and above.

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item new

    $qrcode = Imager::QRCode->new(%params);

The C<new()> constructor method instantiates a new Imager::QRCode object. C<new()> accepts the following parameters.

=over 4

=item *

C<size> - Horizontal and vertical size of module(dot). Default is 4.

=item *

C<margin> - Margin size of QR Code. Default is 3.

=item *

C<level> - Error correction level. Valid values are 'M', 'L', 'Q' or 'H'. Default is 'L'.

=item *

C<version> - Version of the symbol. If specify '0', this module chooses the minimum version for the input data. Default is '0'.

=item *

C<mode> - Encoding mode. Valid values are 'numerical', 'alpha-numerical', '8-bit' or 'kanji'. Default is '8-bit'.

If not give C<casesensitive> then should be given C<mode>. If 'kanji' is given, characters will be encoded as Shift-JIS characters. If '8-bit' is given, all of non-alpha-numerical characters will be encoded as is. If you want to embed UTF-8 string, choose '8-bit'.

=item *

C<casesensitive> - If your application is case-sensitive using 8-bit characters, set to '1'. Default is '0'.


=item plot($text)

    $img = $qrcode->plot("blah blah");

Create a new QR Code image. This method returns Imager object plotted QR Code with the given text.



=over 4

=item plot_qrcode($text, \%params)

C<$text> is input text. C<%params> is same paramater as C<new()>.
