It might take some work, but when I was working on form I decided to 
make a script for barcodes myself:


The reason I did this was that I wasn't happy with the fuzzy PostScript 
creation of the barcode generator, and I wanted a different appearance 
to the numbers to be included under the code.

The method in my script could serve as a function in another script, 
once you know the requirements of the kind of barcode you wish to make. 
Barcodes are a sequence of wide and narrow lines, with wide and narrow 
spaces, and there is ample documentation out there about the standards.
