Additional Info
Zbarcam is pretty straightforward to use. Plug your webcam, start the PND and film the code. Once the code is recognized, it will be copied to the clipboard.

Tips and tricks:

- Before you start scanning, take a moment to adjust your webcam. Most webcams allow you to focus by screwing the lens in and out. Place your webcam approx 20 cm from the target (computer screen, printed text) and adjust the focus to get a sharp view.

- If you wish to abort the operation, press Q before disconnecting the webcam. Removing the webcam while in use may hang the driver, and you will have to reboot in order to use it again.

Changelog:
1.0 - Initial release
1.1 - Fixed the "slow scan" issue
1.2 - Multi-line QR codes are now handled properly
1.3
- Fixed bugs with non-english UTF-8 QR codes
- Interface adapted for batch scanning
1.4
- Fixed a bug which prevented clean PND unmount
- Automatic activation/deactivation of USB host
1.5
- Patched for compatibility with the new kernel drivers (thanks notaz!)
- Reduced PND size
1.5.1
This is a security update. By default, the app won't leave any data in the appdata (or somewhere else), so that QR codes can be safely used to transfer access codes, passwords and keys between Pandora and other devices.

The users in need of batch processing and logging features must create the directory called "log" inside appdata/zbarcam. If this directory is present, each successfully converted data entry is logged there.

Hey, I have an idea! Why not have it log each QRCode scanned to a text file? That's what I mostly use it for, to scan them and then use them later.
