sane-nec - SANE backend for NEC scanners
The sane-nec library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) back-
end that provides access to NEC SCSI scanners. This backend should be
considered alpha-quality software! In the current state it is known to
work with PC-IN500/4C scanners. Another MultiReader scanner series is
not supported. PC-IN 500/4C and MultiReader scanner are only sold in
Japan (except Multi Reader PetiScan).
For other scanners, it may or may not work.
The backend has the following known problems:
- ColorLineart mode is not supported.
- Device name is fixed to /dev/scanner
At present, the following scanners are known to work with this backend.
Vendor Product id
The backend configuration file.
The static library implementing this backend.
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
that support dynamic loading).
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.
