I have a USB barcode scanner. Once plugged in, Windows XP recognizes
it and uses the standard Windows driver for a "Human Interface
Device". I believe it is considered a keyboard input device? After the
barcode scanner is installed it is ready to scan barcodes and decode
the results into numbers. There is a certain two part barcode that is
decoded with a space between the 13th and 14th digit. I need that
space automatically removed. I've tried scanning each part of the
barcode separately but that doesn't work. The whole barcode has to be
scanned in order for the scanner to decode it. Is it possible to
modify the Windows driver to eliminate that space? As an input device
can a modified driver automatically "hit the backspace" whenever a
space is encountered? My price low price is to get an idea if this is
possible. I'm willing to pay additional for the modified driver.
