Problem 602. Make a simplified barcode

Given an integer to encode, make a barcode using the following encoding scheme:

  • The bar code is made from the binary version of the integer
  • The bar code is a matrix 30x?
  • A '1' becomes a thick bar
  • A '0' becomes a thin bar
  • Bars are represented by 0's in the output
  • A '1' becomes '0 0 0'
  • A '0' becomes '0'
  • White space between bars is a single 1
  • There will be no left hand zeros in the binary representation
  • There are three columns of white space at beginning and end of bar code For example:

Input 5 yields

[1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 1] (only repeated for 30 rows);
