       sane-sm3600 - SANE backend for Microtek scanners with M011 USB chip


       The  sane-sm3600 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides
       access to some Microtek scanners with the Toshiba M011  custom  USB  chip.   This  backend
       should be considered alpha.

       There  are  also  backends  for  Microtek  scanners  with  SCSI  command  set.   Refer  to
       sane-microtek(5) and sane-microtek2(5) for details.

       At present, the following scanners are known positively to work with this backend:

              Vendor     Product id:     Remark:
              --------   --------------  -----------
              Microtek   ScanMaker 3600  all modes ok
              Microtek   ScanMaker 3700  reported to work
              Microtek   ScanMaker 3750  reported to work

       If you own a Microtek scanner with the M011 chip other than the ones listed above, it  may
       or may not work with SANE!


       This  backend  dynamically enables the options for the frontend, that are supported by the
       scanner dependent  on  the  scanning-mode  and  other  options.  Unsupported  options  are

       The following options are supported by the sane-sm3600 backend: Color, grayscale, halftone
       and lineart scans.  Also contrast, brightness, and gamma correction.


       This backend does not support device names in a standardized form.


       This backend does not support a configuration file right now.

              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. To see error messages on
              stderr set SANE_DEBUG_SM3600 to 1.

              E.g. just say:
              export SANE_DEBUG_SM3600=5
