Why go through the wheel invention all over, if you can buy a bar code
scanner that plugs inline between your keyboard and PC. This scanner
pumps out ASCII on the PC side. If you want to use a PIC to read it,
what
can be easier than ASCII? You can set it up for all the popular bar
codes.

I like the looks of that chip - it looks to be available locally and is
only 25$ or so in single quantitys.  I found a wand at a surplus place and
it is only 25$ or so.  I feel that with a basic Stamp and a weekend or two I
could build a wedge for under 100$ and still have bragging rights.  The next
step would be interface a LCD Module and a some eeprom for scan storage and
make it portable so we can walk around and scan the books on the shelves
then dump it back to the PC.

Last I checked, comercial taiwanese units were about $100!
The one I saw came with the wand and an interface to the PC keyboard.
