I don't know if this is the problem I solved for a customer some time ago.
Is the format something new, or is it the same thing they used on their
data capture machines way back 10 years?

If it is the same, the clue is that they used a UCSD p-system format, to
which I wrote a dedicated program for a customer.

I can provide you with some tips - if it is - which will allow you to
program it yourself - for free. But my entire source will probably cost
close to the mentioned 500$ + applicable taxes etc.
