So you need two barcodes to sit side by side. '0' and '1'. You can create them with this code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use GD::Barcode::Code39; MakeBar('0'); MakeBar('1'); sub MakeBar { my $txt = shift; my $oGdBar = GD::Barcode::Code39->new("*$txt*"); die $GD::Barcode::Code39::errStr unless($oGdBar); open(IMG, ">", "$txt.png") or die $!; binmode(IMG); print IMG $oGdBar->plot(NoText=>1, Height => 40)->png; close(IMG); }

Then print and affix them to your door. I haven't tested the following code because I have hacked my cuecat to decode the scans but you could use something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Barcode::Cuecat; # seperate counters for open and closed my $open = 0; my $close = 0; my $door; my $bc = new Barcode::Cuecat(); while (<>) { $bc->scan($_); $door .= $bc->code(); if (length $door == 2) { $open++ if ($door eq "01"); $close++ if ($door eq "10"); $door = ""; # we will assume the door started out closed my $state = "closed"; $state = "open" if ($open > $closed); print "Opened: $open times\n"; print "Closed: $closed times\n"; print "Current state: $state\n"; # write to disk } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
