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/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-nec.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/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.
