       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 printed.

       cmdrespause specifies how many usec (1,000,000ths of a second) to wait between writing the
       command and reading the result. 125000 seems to be the lowest I could go reliably.

       breakpause specifies how many usec (1,000,000ths of a second) between sending the "back to
       default" break and sending commands.

       Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored.  A  sample  configuration
       file is shown below:

              # this is a comment


              The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR 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.   On  *NIX  systems,  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

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