In this paper, a new technique to recognize and process Barcodes is introduced. The technique employs Inductive Learning. It is suitable to use, for example, in a factory to control the workers, staff, stock etc. In this technique only vertical lines are considered while the spaces in between are ignored. This results faster processing. Each Barcode is considered to represent an item. For each Barcode a rule is extracted from the necessary information using Inductive Learning. So the unnecessary information is eliminated. This causes faster processing time and less amount of memory. In order to use this technique no special hardware is required. Only a PC and a Barcode reader is enough.
