Barcode: Native...Truetype? So many questions...


I'm just starting my adventure into the world of barcode printing and I have many questions but here are the more basic ones:

1 - There a lot of truetype barcode fonts out there. If I use a truetype for barcode, do I have to worry about print control codes in SAPScript, or DIMM card availability in the printer? Or do I just select <barcode font> instead of courier and that's all?

2 - Checksum generation. Some fonts have checksum digit. Do i have to write a FM to calculate this digit, or SAP has standard functions for this?
