sane-dc210 - SANE backend for Kodak DC210 Digital Camera
The sane-dc210 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
backend that provides access to the Kodak DC210 camera. THIS IS
EXTREMELY ALPHA CODE! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
The current version of the backend only allows one camera to be
connected. The device name is always "0".
The contents of the dc210.conf specify the serial port and baud rate to
use. The baud rate specifies the maximum rate to use while downloading
pictures. (The camera is always initialized using 9600 baud, then
switches to the higher rate). On my 90MHz Pentium, I usually have no
problems downloading at 115200 baud as long as the system is not
excessively busy and the "interrupt-unmask flag" is set in the IDE
driver (hdparm -u1). Supported baud rates are: 9600, 19200, 38400,
57600, and 115200.
The dumpinquiry line causes some information about the camera to be
cmdrespause specifies how many usec (1,000,000ths of a) between writing
the command and reading the result should be used. 125000 seems to be
the lowest I could go reliably.
breakpause is the time in 1,000,000ths of a usec between sending the
"back to default" break sending commands.
Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. A
sample configuration file is shown below:

The static library implementing this backend.
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
that support dynamic loading).
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
configuration file is searched in two default directories:
first, the current working directory (".") and then in
/etc/sane.d. If the value of the environment variable ends with
the directory separator character, then the default directories
are searched after the explicitly specified directories. For
example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would result
in directories "tmp/config", ".", and "/etc/sane.d" being
searched (in this order).
If the library was compiled with debugging support enabled, this
environment variable controls the debug level for this backend.
A value of 128 requests maximally copious debug output; smaller
levels reduce verbosity.

This backend is based somewhat on the dc25 backend included in this
package by Peter Fales.
