NAME

       sane-dc210 - SANE backend for Kodak DC210 Digital Camera

DESCRIPTION

       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!!

DEVICE NAMES

       The current version of the backend only allows one camera to  be  connected.   The  device
       name is always "0".

CONFIGURATION

       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 printed.

       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:

              port=/dev/ttyS0
              # this is a comment
              baud=115200
              dumpinquiry
              cmdrespause=125000
              breakpause=1000000

FILES

       /etc/sane.d/dc210.conf
              The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-dc210.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-dc210.so
              The  shared  library  implementing  this  backend  (present on systems that support
              dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
              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).

       SANE_DEBUG_DC210
              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.

AUTHOR

       Brian J. Murrell

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

       The manpage was copied from the dc25 backend and somewhat edited by Henning Meier-Geinitz.
