In this HowTo we focus to the Metrologic Product MS9535 Voyager and the Os X Operating System.
To use the Thot library with a barcode scanner, we need to configre the scanner as a serial device and then we need to start a bash script that is able to interpret the data from the scanner. The connection use the bluetooth system, that is a default feature both on the Metrologic Scanner and also on the Apple products.
The first step to do is the pairing of the scanner with the computer host.
In the default configuration, the scanner will add a CR (Carriage Return) code to all the barcodes it scans and this generate a problem in the program that read the data from the scanner. To resolve this, we need to change the default behaviour of the scanner.
