There are a number of barcode-enabled PalmOS handheld devices on the market, mostly from Symbol Technologies. These scanners have dozens and dozens of built-in features: which types of barcodes are scanned (and which aren't), whether or not check digits are scanned, how many seconds the scanner tries before giving up, whether the scan beam is wide or narrow, whether an "aiming beam" is activated before the actual scanning beam, and so on.

Programmers can access all of them, and may chose in individual programs to allow end-users to control one or more of these parameters, or may simply "hardcode" some particular set of parameters into the software.
