Actually, the current shipping version was written/compiled in FB.

The QRCode algorithms and specifications were based on details found in 
the following document:

http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=43655

A very laborious task. I kept some parts in C and wrapped them in 
BeginC.../EndC... code to avoid having to translate to C when migrating 
to Xcode in future.

Compared to all the other barcode specifications, the QRCode was really 
an incredible uphill challenge.

Currently in the process of translating into C as part of Xcode 
migration. Most of the FB can be translated to C using the "Make Xcode 
Project" feature, and the main functional parts are done, but converting 
the GUI from Carbon to Cocoa is proving to be yet another challenge...!
