I've written bar code apps and python really doesn't enter into that 
part of things.  Printers generally have bar code printing capabilities 
so you just send the right escape sequences and you get the bar codes. 
To read them, bar code readers scan and translate before sending the 
values through typically a keyboard wedge or serial port.
