This package provides a pure Python QR Code generator module. It uses
the Python Imaging Library (PIL) to allow for the generation of QR Codes.
In contrast to the python-qrencode module this module does not need
an additional C library.
In addition this package provides a command line tool to generate QR
codes and either write these QR codes to a file or do the output
as ascii art at the console.
