 I am sending this for a friend who does not have access to Newsgroups,
 please send replies directly to him. I hope I am posting it to the
 right newsgroups.
Dear netters

I am currently doing a research about barcodes in industry. I am particularly
interested by a barcode system called Europeen Article number (EAN). This EAN
uses 13 digits. The first 2 are called flag zone and is 2 digits long. The 
next 10 digits are used for article code number and the last one digit is used
as an error check digit. I need to know if possible the algorithm used to 
compute the error checking digit in this EAN 13 barcode standard.

Also I would appreciate any additional info about a similar barcode called
EAN 8 and Alpha 39 and the famous UPC used in the USA. 

Please Email me your answer to this address:

Thanks a million
