Bar code functions

All functions use two string parameters, like this;

CIAXCOM_BOOKLAND ( i IN VARCHAR2, o OUT VARCHAR2);

Parameter i is the input string (i.e. your data characters, database field or string expression).

Parameter o is the output string (i.e the bar code, which can be printed using a bar code font)

Note: Some functions return the human readable characters that can be printed below the bar code (or elsewhere). These functions are only necessary for bar code types that have an added check character.

For example, function CIAXCOM_CODE39_A_H( ) is provided to return the human readable for a Code 39 bar code, because the Code 39 check character is often printed, but there is no function CIAXCOM_CODE128_A_H because the Code 128 check character is never printed in the human readable.
