There is often a difference of opinion as to the correct spelling of the word for these interesting symbols.
If you’ve read my posts before, you’ll have noticed that I always spell the name as “barcode”. Others here at the WincoPlex tell me that it should be “bar code”.
The spell checker in Microsoft Office often wants to change my spelling to be “bar-code”!
So which is the correct way to document the name of this important item?
Definition of BAR CODE
a machine-readable code in the form of numbers and a pattern of parallel lines of varying widths, printed on and identifying a product. Also called Universal Product Code.
Oh, as a barcode geek test, can you identify all the barcode symbologies I’ve used in my little graphic?
Final thought (and totally off topic) – how on earth can Google index my posts in four minutes? Amazing!
