    I'm looking for option to close the zbarcam (in Linux) after one succesful reading or timeout.

    Is there any clever way to do this or this should be integrated into zbarcam?

    When later is true then how should I request this change?

    I'm having the same issue, so far haven't found a way to terminate the process after a succesful scan.
    I tried using the 'head -n' command but i think the multi-line output of the qr-code is messing that up as it only outputs one line of the qr-code every scan and finally terminates. Just having a parameter for the process to end after a succesful scan would be nice. But i'm open for suggestions on how to work around the issue.
