       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. Other MultiReader
       scanner series are 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.
