       sane-nec - SANE backend for NEC scanners


       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


              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
              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.
