NAME

       sane-tamarack - SANE backend for Tamarack flatbed scanners


DESCRIPTION

       The  sane-tamarack  library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the following  Tamarack  flatbed  scan-
       ners:

              Artiscan 6000C
              Artiscan 8000C
              Artiscan 12000C


DEVICE NAMES

       This backend expects device names of the form:

              special

       Where  special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds
       to a SCSI scanner. The special device name must be a generic  SCSI  de-
       vice  or  a symlink to such a device.  The program sane-find-scanner(1)
       helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a  device  name
       could  be  /dev/sga or /dev/sge, for example.  See sane-scsi(5) for de-
       tails.


FILES

       /usr/local/etc/sane.d/tamarack.conf
              The  backend  configuration  file  (see  also   description   of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

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

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


ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
              This environment variable specifies the list of directories that
              may contain the configuration file.  Under UNIX, the directories
              are separated by a colon (`:'), under OS/2, they  are  separated
              by a semi-colon (`;').  If this variable is not set, the config-
              uration file is searched in two default directories: first,  the
              current   working   directory   (".")   and   then  in  /usr/lo-
              cal/etc/sane.d.  If the value of the environment  variable  ends
              with  the directory separator character, then the default direc-
              tories are searched after the explicitly specified  directories.
              For example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would re-
              sult in directories tmp/config, ., and /usr/local/etc/sane.d be-
              ing searched (in this order).

       SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK
              If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this en-
              vironment variable controls the debug level  for  this  backend.
              Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

              Example: export SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK=4
