Open Source Data Matrix Scanning

Great article! I also wanted to mention that while the article lists libdmtx as a Data Matrix encoder, it is also a fully capable Data Matrix decoder (i.e., scanner). In fact, libdmtx began life as a pure decoder, and encoding was only added later for the sake of design symmetry. Also, for readers interested in additional mobile options, here's a video of iDMTX (written by Martin Pittenauer and based on libdmtx) running on an iPhone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMYASEjeSGY Thanks for the great overview of open source barcode software!
