note sure which PC you refer to; the client or server?
PHP is a server-side language, so you cannot read anything from the client PC.
Try to explain what you want to do, e.g. WHY do you want to read from a barcode reader?

i was told previously that barcode reader would just output the numbers. You would probably need java or C++/C# etc that can ( i hope and think) interact with the barcode reader
