NAME

       xcam - a graphical camera frontend for SANE

SYNOPSIS

       xcam [--buffer|-B] [--version|-V] [--help|-h]

DESCRIPTION

       xcam   provides   a   graphical  user-interface  to  control  an  image
       acquisition device such as a flatbed scanner or a  camera.   It  allows
       scanning  invidual images and can be invoked directly from the command-
       line.

       xcam acts as a stand-alone program that  saves  acquired  images  in  a
       suitable  PNM format (PBM for black-and-white images, PGM for grayscale
       images, and PPM for color images).

       xcam accesses image  acquisition  devices  through  the  SANE  (Scanner
       Access  Now  Easy) interface.  The list of available devices depends on
       installed hardware and configuration.

       xcam presents a menu listing of all known and available devices.

OPTIONS

       If the --Buffer (-B) option is given, xcam will use a 1024 kByte  input
       buffer instead of the default 32 kByte.

       If  the  --version  (-V)  option is given, xcam will output its version
       number.

       The --help (-h) xcam flag prints a short summary of options.

       SANE_DEBUG_XCAM
              This environment variable controls the debug  level  xscanimage.
              Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

                            Value  Descsription
                            0      print fatal errors
                            1      print errors
                            2      print warnings
                            3      print information messages
                            4      print everything

                            Example:
                            SANE_DEBUG_XCAM=3

FILES

       $HOME/.sane/xcam/devicename.rc
              For  each  device,  there  is  one  rc-file that holds the saved
              settings for that particular device.  Normally, this file should
              not  be  manipulated directly.  Instead, the user should use the
              xcam interface to select appropriate values and  then  save  the
              device   settings   using   the  "Preferences->Save  as  default
              settings" menubar entry.
