The EAN token is used to generate EAN13 codes that are often placed on the front page of a diary. The syntax is :
where the string of x's (12 of them) represent 12 possible digits. The only digits allowed for each x are the numbers 0-9 and the letter "y". You can place from 1-4 y characters in the EAN token, and Q++ will replace these by the same number of digits from the year of the token, and then automatically generate the 13th control digit.
