NAME

       sane-escl - SANE backend for eSCL scanners


DESCRIPTION

       The sane-escl library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) back-
       end that provides access to eSCL protocol scanners.

       The "escl" backend for SANE supports AirScan/eSCL devices that announce
       themselves  on mDNS as _uscan._utcp or _uscans._utcp.  If the device is
       available, the "escl" backend recovers these capacities.  The user con-
       figures  and starts scanning.  A list of devices that use the eSCL pro-
       tocol can be found at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201311.   While
       these devices are expected to work, your mileage may vary.


FILES

       /usr/local/etc/sane.d/escl.conf
              The backend configuration file.

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-escl.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-escl.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).


ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_DEBUG_ESCL
              If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this en-
              vironment  variable  controls  the debug level for this backend.
              E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output  to  be  printed.
              Smaller levels reduce verbosity.
