Version 3.20 gains vector Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) generation.
Really Simple Barcodes is an application for generating barcodes that can be printed, copied to the clipboard for pasting into other applications, or saved as graphic files. You can also generate many barcode image files taking the data from a list in a text file, or generate many font-based barcodes on the clipboard, taking data from the clipboard - ideal for putting a column of barcodes into Excel. It also can be used for simple barcode label printing, including sequenced labels.
The new version gains the facility to generate vector Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files and memory streams to the formats supported (Enhanced metafile and a variety of bitmap formats). This addition allows the creation of very high resolution images to be transferred to any PostScript supporting platform using plain text files and makes the product ideal for printing companies that need to create their own barcode images.
dLSoft developed from a software house created in 1988 for the specific purpose of creating barcode and labelling software and components for Microsoft Windows. Through the dLSoft range of products the company has been providing labelling applications and barcoding components for a range of Windows developer environments since Windows 2, including more recently a range of components for the .NET and CE.NET environments. In 2004 dLSoft expanded its activities to include Java components, and in 2005 a number of products for the Mac OS-X platform were released.
