Create and Embed Barcodes using PHP

PHP GD Library 
In case of Debian Linux just run command :

#sudo apt-get install php5-gd

Barcode script : 
View the code here:

That Scripts generates barcodes in four barcode formats including Code 128, Code 39, Code 2of5, and Codabar. With a little over 100 lines of code you have the options of “vertical” or “horizontal” display, varying barcode heights, and one of four barcode formats.

How to embed in HTML code:
Example 1:
<img alt="testing" src="/yourfilelocation/barcode.php" />
Example 2 (with text data):
<img alt="testing" src="/yourfilelocation/barcode.php?text=testing" />
Example 3 (with codetype, size, text)
<img alt="TESTING" src="/yourfilelocation/barcode.php?codetype=Code39&size=40&text=TESTING" />
