A graphical code reader is disclosed. The graphical code reader includes a processor and memory in electronic communication with the processor. The memory is used for storing a digital image of a graphical code. The graphical code reader also includes a plurality of decoders. Each decoder of the plurality of decoders is cofigured to decode at least one graphical code symbology. The graphical code reader also includes a decoder manager that implements a method. The method involves identifying a most recently successful decoder from the plurality of decoders. The most recently successful decoder decoded a most recently decoded graphical code. The method also involves instructing the most recently successful decoder to process the digital image before instructing any other decoder to process the digital image.

Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
