The real advantage of the CSM150 is that it opens up tremendous possibilities for the development of applications geared towards consumers, data collection environments, helpdesk support and asset/inventory tracking. Development languages currently on the market, such as CASL allow integration of CSM150 functionality directly into your own applications. CASL accomplishes this through the CASL_SPT external library. To add scanning capability to a new or existing application, include this library into your project and add a few lines of code to handle the Trigger event.

An excellent example of how this can be accomplished is included during the installation of CASLPro in the “Samples/CASLPro Samples/Scanner” directory. Using CASLPro, applications can be complied to true .PRC files and eliminate the need for a run-time library.

There are many other programming languages available for the PalmOS® that allow taking advantage of the scanning capabilities of the CSM150. Some languages will allow use of this functionality at an additional cost, while others make use of freely available libraries. Before deciding to integrate CSM150 (or Symbol barcode scanning support) to your application, be sure to determine if there is additional cost associated to use those libraries. Symbol also includes further information on their website about other development environments and libraries that are available.
