libdmtx for Windows Publisher's description
libdmtx is open source software for reading and writing Data Matrix barcodes on Windows
libdmtx is open source software for reading and writing Data Matrix barcodes on Windows, and mobile devices. At its core libdmtx is a native shared library, allowing C/C++ programs to use its capabilities without extra restrictions or overhead.
The corresponding utility programs, dmtxread and dmtxwrite, provide the official command line interface for libdmtx, and serve as a code reference for programmers wishing to use the libdmtx C API. The core library is distributed under the Simplified BSD license, and all other project software uses the LGPLv2 license.
Data Matrix barcodes are two-dimensional symbols that hold a dense pattern of data with built-in error correction. The Data Matrix symbology (sometimes casually referred as "DataMatrix") was invented and released into the public domain by RVSI Acuity CiMatrix. Wikipedia has a good page on Data Matrix and its characteristics.
What's New in This Release:Version 0.7.4 introduces big structural changes designed to make libdmtx useful for a wider audience. In practice this involved rewrites for 2 of the 3 major project components:
В· The encoder and the Reed Solomon code.
These changes shouldn't change how libdmtx appears to calling programs, but hopefully the overall project will become more useful to developers who previously couldn't use it for a number of reasons. Some of the changes include:
В· The core library (not including command line utilities or wrappers) is now distributed under a permissive BSD license.
В· This detail is important for people developing on certain closed platforms.
В· Dragonfly Logic also now offers a license waiver option, which had been a stumbling block for organizations in certain industries wishing to avoid disclosure of implementation details for security reasons.
В· Revision control has been transitioned from SVN to Git, and is now broken up into libdmtx, dmtx-utils, and dmtx-wrappers.
В· Code in the latter two reposi...
