If you are interested in working with barcodes on your computer, you might want to create a random barcode number online. You can find barcodes on a variety of objects, such as on cans of food and other products in supermarkets, or on mailer packages to help them get routed through a system. A barcode is a series of black and white bars that encode numerical data, which corresponds to an item in a database. You can easily go online and generate a random barcode number.
