There's no difference, provided that the chip's input impedance is
infinite, and there's no interfering EMI.
Otherwise, you can calculate the effect of non-infinite input impedance.
EMI is harder to predict, but generally, keeping your source impedance low
keeps this from becoming much of a problem.

Got a need to read Bar codes? http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
