What do you call it?

Was researching an idea and ran into a problem.

What do they call those little square code symbols that look like a crossword puzzle with some of the squares blacked out? They use them kind of like bar codes or signatures or...?

I wanted to see if they could be used, but since I don't know their name, I can't see how to use them.

I goggled coding and that wasn't any help, too general I'd guess.

However I did find some interesting tidbits like:

Text symbols
Probably useful for expanding the 140 character limits of twitter.

And Huffman coding
I might have been interested in this 15 years ago as it could have helped in communications and modulation technology. Since I switched form electronics to language arts, it is just gibberish.

So what are those little squares called?

Woohoo! I'm not sure which I'm more chuffed about. A trio of attractive pussies, Or the fact that I've just been called a "youngster!"

Read the Wiki on this and it doesn't fit what I was trying to do, but might fit in somewhere later.

What's "chuffed" mean?

Almost everyone is a youngster to me. No offense intended.

Fear Not. "Chuffed" means very pleased or happy.

We like it that way, Jack. Last time we let our inscrutability slip you swiped the colonies off us...

I know I'm "only" 47, but being called a youngster is still a red-letter day in my book...

You're just prime for a MILF attack then. Just park your Bentley in front of the pub, buy some drinks and you may get some back seat action.
