While messing with AutoBarcode, it occurred to me that being able to display a text string as a QR code in an Autotools dialog has two use cases
- Debug, like the Linux kernel has. Link
- NFC functionality for sending e.g a text message between two phones without RF communication.
It's here in case anyone is interested, for fun. No worries if anyone thinks it's pointless.
(Including ZXing is probably bloat in this context, using a web service for a dialog is weird. :)
