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.
