When using FOP with the krysalis barcode to generate
PCL I get a java Null Pointer error.

PDF and PS files create OK.

The files I'm using are the barcodes.xml and
barcodes2xsl-fo.xsl that come with the xsl-fo download.

Could you mail me back at ciaran.oneill@united-drug.ie
for more details or for a fix estimate.

Thanks,
Ciaran.

    The problem is not really Krysalis Barcode but FOP whose PCL
    Renderer doesn't support SVG. Of course, a nicer error
    message and a note on the website would be appropriate.
    So, for the moment it is not possible to produce barcodes
    with FOP's PCL renderer. It might be possible to feed a bitmap
    version of the barcode to the PCL renderer. That's why I
    leave the bug report as a reminder so I will revisit the problem
    when I have time. Sorry that I can't give you an estimate on
    that but I might have some time over xmas.

    If you want to look into this yourself, my pointers to you are:
    - FOP's PCLRenderer.java, method renderImageArea()
    - Krysalis Barcode's org.krysalis.barcode.fop0205.BarcodeArea
