Guest I am looking for a lightweight (yet durable) scanning pen w/USB interface that has the ability to leave out the start and stop code when sending to the computer (use but doesn't send asterisk). We will be scanning Code39 almost if not always.

Pen styled scanners are not very common these days but there is a USB based option with the Unitech MS100. This unit is very programmable so they you can manipulate the data that is scanned before transmitting to the PC. Most scanner these days are in a gun style form factor like the Honeywell 1300g which tend to scan more quickly and have more programming options than pen scanners.
