Hi to All,
i'm italian and I must generate a barcode into a PDF file.

I'm using
   O.S: Windows XP Professional
   Ruby: 1.8.5
   Rails: 1.2.1

... I found a ruby gem (barcode-0.2.gem) to do this, at least I think
:)).
Is it the right way to do it?
Where can I find some documentation?

i suggest to take a look on JasperReports.
i think it's the best way to integrate reports, barcode and pdf
generation into your rails app.
as far as  i know theres no satisfying way in rails.

http://jasperforge.org/ JasperReports / iReport (generate your reports
with a GUI)
http://jasperforge.org/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/project...
Samples => barbecue sample for you

at least a starting point for the integration:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowtoInteg...

i took me a while to use it. so good luck. :)
