does anyone know if we could use the Raspberry Pi Camera Module to scan in barcodes, perhaps with Zbar... and if not, what we could use instead? Would prefer to use the Camera module if possible.
The camera module doesn't appear as a v4l device, so you can't use it
directly with zbarcam -- but some standard unix pipework should let
you extract still images from the camera and feed them to zbar. I
haven't tried this so I don't know how responsive it would be.
