  Description     : software codec generating 2D barcodes for data storage on paper

Optar stands for OPTical ARchiver. It's a codec for encoding data on paper or free
software 2D barcode in other words. Optar fits 200kB on an A4 page, then you print
it with a laser printer.
.
If you want to read the recording, scan it with a scanner and feed into the decoder
program. A practical level of reliability is ensured using forward error correction
code (FEC).
.
Automated processing of page batches facilitates storage of files larger than 200kB.

Subject: git mirror of the source code
Date: Sun, 27 Oct 2013 12:46:30 +0100
Somebody took the source tar.gz and started a git repo on Github. It still 
needs investigation whether the original upstream would like to bless the 
github repo. The original upstream seems unresponsive?
