German term or phrase: Strichcode
Hello,
I have a text here that refers to both Barcodes and Strichcodes. What is a Strichcode? (I assume bardcodes and "strichcodes" are two different things, but I could be wrong.)
Many Thanks!

Explanation:
Strichcode is the regular german term, referring to the codes to be found on each item package; most likely bar code is used as a synonym

Stripe (Bar) Code


Explanation:
Difference between bar codes and stripe codes, I would think.

SEE THE FOLLOWING:
Bar Code and Magnetic Stripe Scanners and Decoders

Scans BAR CODES
The Omni scans bar codes printed on paper, card stock, or plastic. An infrared option is available for security-based applications, where bar codes are overprinted to prevent duplication.

Reads MAGNETIC STRIPES (also called mag stripes)
The Omni reads up to three tracks of information with a single swipe in either direction. In combination, the same Omni unit can read both bar code and magnetic stripe media. TTL, RS232, and keyboard wedge interfaces are available.

Visa/MC/Amex are Magnetic Stripe Cards.

barcode


Explanation:
To my knowledge it isq the only term that is in use for "Strichcode".
Also see: http://www.amerbar.com/university/dictionary.html for a dictionary of all terms in connection with barcodes.

If you search Google for "stripecode" there is only one site with your context, and there it seems to be a trade name, because the context itself is a programm for barcode generation.
