    my $image = Barcode::ZBar::Image->new();
    $image->set_format('422P');
    $image->set_size(114, 80);

    }

DESCRIPTION ^

The ZBar Bar Code Reader is a library for scanning and decoding bar codes from various sources such as video streams, image files or raw intensity sensors. It supports EAN, UPC, Code 128, Code 39 and Interleaved 2 of 5.

These are the bindings for interacting directly with the library from Perl.
