NAME

sane-nec - SANE backend for NEC scanners  

DESCRIPTION

The sane-nec library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend 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
------ -----------
NEC    PC-IN500/4C

 

FILES

/etc/sane.d/nec.conf
The backend configuration file.
/usr/lib/sane/libsane-nec.a
The static library implementing this backend.
/usr/lib/sane/libsane-nec.so
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).
 

ENVIRONMENT

SANE_DEBUG_NEC
If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment 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.
