Just Barcodes CL Help - Bookland EAN Command Line Options


Data / number
-data [Number]
Specifies the ISBN-13 / barcode number. Required
The first 12 digits are required by default, when using the automatic check digit feature.
To use 978123456789 for the number (with automatic check digit):
-data 978123456789
You may split the number and specify the prefix separately using the -prefix option below.
The ISBN-10 number (if required) is extracted from this number, and its check digit is auto-calculated.
Prefix
-prefix [Number]
Specifies a 3-digit prefix for the ISBN-13 / barcode number. Optional
To specify 978123456789 using both the -data and -prefix options (again, assuming the automatic check digit is being used):
-prefix 978 -data 123456789
This is particularly useful when using a Settings File.
Add-on code
-addon [Number]
Specifies a 2-digit or 5-digit add-on code. Optional
To specify an add-on code of 54321 :

No check digit
-nocheck
Prevents the ISBN-13 check digit from being automatically calculated and appended. Optional
e.g.

If this option is used, you need to provide all 13 digits for the ISBN-13. Note that the ISBN-10 check digit is always auto-calculated when necessary.
Allow incorrect check digit
-badcheck
Allows you to supply an incorrect check digit (for specialised testing purposes). Optional
e.g.
-badcheck
For this option to have any effect, you also need to use the -nocheck option and provide all 13 digits for the ISBN-13. Note that the ISBN-10 check digit is always auto-calculated when necessary.
Warning This option should be used with care, as it allows unscannable barcodes to be generated!
