Having made a script for generating Code 39 barcodes, I wanted to take this one step further, and use that script inside a larger script that creates a form that I use which has barcodes on it. Here it is:

Standard form.png As you can see, this is something designed for a hospital chart, which was the intended use. When I first began doing this, the idea was to begin to generate my notes in charts using Scribus, so I went about creating a template form with Scribus. Since I wanted to have this blend in with existing notes in the chart, I faithfully measured, created, edited the basic features of the form so that it would be indistinguishable from the stock forms that the hospital buys, except for the fact that I wanted to make the notes in the right hand column with Scribus instead of my variably legible handwriting.
