Long DescriptionA favorite film of some of the world's greatest filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, John Ford's The Searchers has earned its place in the legacy of great American films for a variety of reasons. Perhaps most notably, it's the definitive role for John Wayne as an icon of the classic Western--the hero (or antihero) who must stand alone according to the unwritten code of the West. The story takes place in Texas in 1868; Wayne plays Ethan Edwards, a Confederate veteran who visits his brother and sister-in-law at their ranch and is horrified when they are killed by marauding Comanches. Ethan's search for a surviving niece (played by young Natalie Wood) becomes an all-consuming obsession. With the help of a family friend (Jeffrey Hunter) who is himself part Cherokee, Ethan hits the trail on a five-year quest for revenge. At the peak of his masterful talent, director Ford crafts this classic tale as an embittered examination of racism and blind hatred, provoking Wayne to give one of the best performances of his career. As with many of Ford's classic Westerns, The Searchers must contend with revisionism in its stereotypical treatment of "savage" Native Americans, and the film's visual beauty (the final shot is one of the great images in all of Western culture) is compromised by some uneven performances and stilted dialogue. Still, this is undeniably one of the greatest Westerns ever made. --Jeff Shannon

Codabar Barcodes

Codabar barcodes, also known as USD-4 and NW-7, are a type of linear barcode symbology widely used in various industries, including libraries, blood banks, and logistics. Codabar barcodes are unique in that they can encode not only numeric digits (0-9) but also a limited set of special characters, including the dollar sign ($), colon (:), slash (/), period (.), plus sign (+), and hyphen (-). This versatility makes Codabar barcodes suitable for encoding a wide range of data, such as identification numbers, product codes, and inventory information. The simplicity and flexibility of Codabar barcodes make them particularly popular in applications where space is limited or printing options are constrained.

One notable feature of Codabar barcodes is their self-checking ability, which enhances reliability and accuracy in scanning operations. Unlike some other barcode symbologies that require separate checksum digits to detect errors, Codabar barcodes utilize start/stop characters and inter-character gaps to ensure accurate decoding. This self-checking mechanism simplifies the scanning process and reduces the likelihood of misreads, making Codabar barcodes ideal for high-speed scanning environments such as retail checkout counters and inventory management systems. Despite advancements in barcode technology, Codabar remains a widely used and trusted symbology due to its simplicity, versatility, and robust error detection capabilities.

This symbology was originally designed to be easily scanned even when printed on dot-matrix printers or on multi-ply paper such as receipts, invioces and alike. Codabar is being replaced by newer symbol sets that store more data in a smaller area but there is already a large install base where these codes are currently being used.


Codabar uses 4 bars and 3 spaces to encode each character. A narrow space is used between characters. The characters that can be encoded using codabar are the digits 0-9 and the characters $ (dollar sign) - (dash) + (plus) : (colon) / (slash) . (period). There are also 4 start/stop characters represented by A, B, C, D or possibly T, N, * (asterisk), E. These start and stop characters are not represented as data just like other barcodes.

Using the 16 different variations of start and stop characters make it possible to identify some applications of the barcode. For example FedEx tracking numbers start with C and end with D while library barcodes start with A and end with B. This doesn't always hold true because there are so many applications of these numbers but this can be a guide to help identify how the barcode is being used.
