Heyho everyone,

I am writing a small barcode program that will give me a pdf full of
barcodes when it's done.

Since I am not an expert programmer, I translated some of the GNU
barcode stuff to C++ (easier, safer) and planned to use cairo to do the

I wanted to write a function that prints the barcode to a cairo
recording surface and return that surface, allowing the main function to
put the barcode anywhere on the pdf with a small amount of code.

Is this possible using cairomm? There is no cairomm documentation on a
recording surface.

Should I file a bug for this feature?

Or should I use extern "C" { ... } for this?

Thanks and bye,
