SYNOPSIS

qrencode [OPTION]... [STRING]

DESCRIPTION

Libqrencode is a library for encoding data in a QR Code symbol, a kind of 2D symbology that can be scanned by handy terminals such as a mobile phone with CCD. The capacity of QR Code is up to 7000 digits or 4000 characters, and has high robustness.

Qrencode is a utility software using libqrencode to encode string data in a QR Code and save as a PNG or EPS image.

OPTIONS

-h, --help display help message.
-o FILENAME, --output=FILENAME
  write image to FILENAME. If ’-’ is specified, the result will be output to standard output. If -S is given, structured symbols are written to FILENAME-01.png, FILENAME-02.png, ... (suffix is removed from FILENAME, if specified)
-s NUMBER, --size=NUMBER
  specify the size of dot (pixel). (default=3)
-l {LMQH}, --level={LMQH}
  specify error collectin level from L (lowest) to H (highest). (default=L)
-v NUMBER, --symversion=NUMBER
  specify the version of the symbol. See SYMBOL VERSIONS for more information. (default=auto)
-m NUMBER, --margin=NUMBER
  specify the width of margin. (default=4)
-d NUMBER, --dpi=NUMBER
  specify the DPI of the generated PNG. (default=72)
-t {PNG,EPS,SVG,ANSI,ANSI256,ASCII,ASCIIi,UTF8,ANSIUTF8}
--type={PNG,EPS,SVG,ANSI,ANSI256,ASCII,ASCIIi,UTF8,ANSIUTF8}

--foreground=RRGGBB[AA]
--background=RRGGBB[AA]
  specify foreground/background color in hexadecimal notation. 6-digit (RGB) or 8-digit (RGBA) form are supported. Color output support available only in PNG and SVG.
-V, --version
  display the version number and copyrights of the qrencode.
--verbose
  display verbose information to stderr.
[STRING]
  input data. If it is not specified, data will be taken from standard input.

SYMBOL VERSIONS

The symbol versions of QR Code range from Version 1 to Version 40. Each version has a different module configuration or number of modules, ranging from Version 1 (21 x 21 modules) up to Version 40 (177 x 177 modules). Each higher version number comprises 4 additional modules per side by default. See http://www.qrcode.com/en/about/version.html for a detailed version list.

EXAMPLES

qrencode -l L -v 1 -o output.png ’Hello, world!’
  encode into a symbol version 1, level L.
qrencode -iSv 1 --output=output.png
  read standard input and encode it into a structured-appended symbols in case-insensitive mode.
cat bigfile.txt | qrencode -S -v 40 -l L -o output.png
  encode into a symbol version 40, level L.
