Using DataMatrix CGI barcode generator

To get information about the DataMatrix CGI application (and also the license information), just specify the parameter help:


If the web server returns an error for some reason (for example, a CGI Error for a Windows server or an Internal Server Error for Linux), you may have specified some parameters incorrectly. Try specifying the parameters as shown below and you will get such an error.
