How do barcodes look like in PCL datastream?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to gather information about how  do barcodes function in PCL and am a bit confused.

How do barcodes actually look like in a usual PCL datastream?  I have some PCL file examples

where barcodes are described with just normal rectangles and numbers, but as far as I understand

this is not typical nowadays.  Are they just another type of fonts and are included in PCL datastream

as soft fonts of special type?   I am reading about some special barcode modules which are meant

to enable barcoding in PCL files.  What do these modules do?  I would be also gratefule  for some

examples of PCL files with modern barcodes. Where could I find such examples?

Thank you very much in advance for your help,
