I have an assignment to read in a 5 digit zip code, sum the digits, and come up with the check digit. I then need to convert this to encode into a five digit bar code plus the check digit. In our book, we have completed arrays and this assignment comes from "designing classes." Can someone help me get started? The bar code is a | for a 1 and : for a 0 as well as a | at the beginning and a | at the end. For example, the zip code 95014 has a sum of 19, check digit would be a 1 to become a multiple of 10 and when printed would look like this:
Thank you in advance.
