News nybble: QrCode gains data redundancy control

Kevin Wells has made available version 1.01 of QrCode, his application to produce the ‘square’ bar codes you sometimes see, which often have URLs and other data encoded within them. First released in 2015, the software requires Wget to work, because it uses the services of the QR Code Generator website.

Requested by a user of the software, the update adds the ability to set the error conversion code, which determines the degree of data redundancy. Interactive help has also been added, to make its use that little bit easier – and Kevin has also uploaded a short video of the application in action.
