Android PC_BCR enables you to use Android mobile device as a barcode scanner peripheral for your PC. Barcodes that you scan with your Android mobile are transfered over a WiFi network to the PC. Android device needs to be on the same WiFi network as you computer.
There are several components to the program. On the mobile device, the PC_BCR program uses the ZXing barcode scanner to scan the barcodes. The program then transfers the data over the network to the PC, where it is received by the PC_BCR program on the PC. This program on the PC can function as either a keyboard wedge scanner, where the barcode data will be typed into whatever editable field has focus (as if it were typed out using the keyboard), or it can also send data to a serial port where it can be consumed by another program on the PC.
The PC application uses Mono and GTK#. It supports Windows (as supported by Mono) and any Unix that can run xvkbd and Mono.
