An application capable of monitoring the PS2 port where the keyboard is connected to a keyboard wedge along with a barcode . This application must be able to intercept an ASCII string coming from the PS2 port and immediately trigger either an application or a web page in a browser.
The admin of the application must be able to merge the ASCII string that came from the PS2 port into the command line for another application or merge the string into a web address before opening a browser.
The user will pick either to use this for an application or a web browser. A toggle must be used for this purpose.
I am using a Unitech barcode scanner that is attached to the PS2 port via a keyboard wedge connection.
The barcode scanner can be programmed to send an initial custom character that the program can watch for. This program will run at all times in the background.
Here is a link to all of the info for the barcode scanner
