General Options

Settings file
-set [FileName]
Reads additional settings from the given file. Optional
e.g.
-set MyFile.txt
See Settings Files
If your settings file name contains spaces, use quotes around the name, e.g.
-set "My Settings File.txt"
Symbology
-sym [code128 | code39 | ean8 | ean13 | ean128 | i2of5 | itf14 | upca | upce]
Sets the type of barcode. Required
e.g. to select the EAN-8 symbology:
-sym ean8
Size units
-sizeu [mm | inch]
Selects the units to use when setting and reporting sizes. Optional
e.g. to use inches units:
-sizeu inch
Default: mm For Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and ITF-14:
When using inches, mils are used when specifying narrow bar width.
(1 mil = 0.001 inch)
When using mm, microns are used when specifying narrow bar width.
(1 micron = 0.001 mm)
Resolution units
-resu [dpi | dpmm]
Selects the units used for the resolution value. Optional
e.g. to use dots per mm for the resolution setting:
-resu dpmm
Default: dpi
Resolution
-res [Resolution]
Sets the resolution of the barcode bitmap to be generated. Optional
e.g. to set the resolution to 200 dpi (assuming default resolution units):
-res 200
Default:
300 dpi (when using the default dpi units)
12 dpmm (when using dpmm units)
Range:
25 - 2400 dpi 1 - 94 dpmm
Orientation
-ori [0 | 90 | 180 | 270]
Sets the barcode orientation (rotation). Optional
e.g. to produce a barcode at 90 degree orientation:
-ori 90
Default: 0
Output to file
-outfile [FileName]
Stores the barcode image in the given file. Optional
e.g. to output the barcode image to a file named MyFile.bmp:
-outfile MyFile.bmp
File format: See -outff below
If the name contains spaces, read the section at the top of this page
If neither this option nor the -outclip option is used, a warning is generated, because the barcode has not been output.
Output file format
-outff [tiff | bmp1 | bmp8]
Specifies the desired output image file format (when using -outfile). Optional *
    bmp1 specifies a 1-bit (monochrome) per pixel .bmp file
    bmp8 specifies an 8-bit per pixel .bmp file
    tiff specifies a .tif file
e.g. to output a TIFF file called MyFile.tif:
-outff tiff outfile MyFile
This option was added to Just Barcodes CL V1.1.2. Before that version, the bmp8 format was always used.
If this option is not specified, the file name extension determines the type, and the .bmp extension results in the bmp1 format being used, e.g.
-outfile MyFile.tif
* If no file name extension is supplied, this option must be used.
TIFF compression
-tiffcomp [none | ccittg3]
Specifies whether to compress TIFF files (when using -outfile with -outff tiff). Optional *
    none TIFF files are not compressed (default)
    ccittg3 TIFF files are compressed using the CCITT Group 3 format
e.g. to output a TIFF file called MyFile.tif and use compression:
-outff tiff -tiffcomp ccittg3 outfile MyFile
Note: If using Windows 7, a hotfix may be required to prevent black horizontal lines from being shown. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2459492 for more details.
Output to clipboard
-outclip
Copies the barcode image to the clipboard, so it may be pasted into other applications. Optional
e.g. to place the barcode image to the clipboard:
-outclip
If neither this option nor the -outfile option is used, a warning is generated, because the barcode has not been output.
Hide errors
-noerr
Prevents error message from being displayed on the command line. Optional
e.g.
-noerr
Hide warnings
-nowarn
Prevents warning message from being displayed on the command line. Optional
e.g.
-nowarn
Clear clipboard on error
-clrclip
Deletes the output file if possible, if an error occurs. This can help reduce the chance of using a previously generated barcode. Optional
e.g.
-clrclip
Delete output file on error
-delfile
Deletes the output file if possible, if an error occurs. This can help reduce the chance of using a previously generated barcode. Optional
e.g.
-delfile
This option will fail if the output file is already in use (e.g. still open in another application).
Hide human readable
-nohuman
Prevents the human readable (text) below the barcode from being generated. Optional
e.g.
-nohuman
Font name
-font [FontName]
Sets the font to be used when generating the human readable (text) below the barcode. Optional
e.g. to use the Arial font:
-font Arial
If the name contains spaces, read the section at the top of this page.
Show information
-info
Displays additional information on the command line, after generating the barcode. Optional
e.g.
-info
The information shown depends on the symbology. It includes the exact magnification, narrow bar width, bar width ratio and the image size.
Do not show reminder window
-noremw
Prevents the reminder window from appearing during the trial period. Optional
e.g.
-noremw
Instead of the trial window appearing, a reminder is shown on the command line and a 5-second pause is introduced.
In some cases, the reminder window can cause problems when calling Just Barcodes CL from other applications (rather than using the command prompt or a batch file). This option can be used to avoid any such problems.
