Barcodes, are something that anyone can use ina "real life" aplication, such as stock control...
So my answer would be Yes!

Thanks for your quick reply

Although an experienced developer, I am new to basic4ppc.

Do you know if I would be possible to launch something like QuickMark

QuickMark Mobile Barcode - Web Site QuickMark

and then get the data returned to my app, maybe by listening to local port and use local http address in the barcode?

I am trying to read data from the camera based barcode reader and have it returned to the Basic4ppc program, there may or may not be a web connection available at the time.

You should be able to launch QuickMark by using either the Shell function in Basic4ppc or by using the Process object in my Threading library. The advantage of a Process object is that it will tell you when the launched app closes. So you could lauch QuickMark, the user could read a barcode and save the result to a file and then when they exited the app your app would know and could read the barcode data from the file.
