NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sane-dc240 - SANE backend for Kodak DC240 Digital Camera

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  sane-dc240	library  implements  a	SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides  access  to  the  Kodak  DC240  camera.  THIS  IS

DEVICE NAMES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

CONFIGURATION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The contents of the dc240.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 a 450MHz Pentium, I usually have no
       problems downloading at 115200 baud, though the camera sometimes has to
       resend  packets	due  to  lost characters.  Results are better when 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

       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:

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

	      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).

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

	      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

       SANE_DEBUG_DC240    [Toc]    [Back]
	      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    [Toc]    [Back]

       Peter S. Fales

       This backend borrows heavily from the dc210 backend by Brian J. Murrell
       which is based somewhat on the dc25 backend by Peter Fales.

       The manpage was largeley copied from the dc210 manpage.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  major  limitation  that  I know of is that the backend assumes the
       directory in the camera is 100dc240.  Once the camera  has  taken  more
       than 9999 pictures, the directory will increment to 101dc240.  Not only
       should we check for the additional directory, but pictures may actually
       be found in multiple directories.

       More  general  comments,  suggestions, and inquiries about frontends or
       SANE  should  go   to   the   SANE   Developers	 mailing   list   (see
       http://www.mostang.com/sane/mail.html  for  details).  You must be subscribed
 to the list, otherwise your mail won't  be  sent  to  the  subscribers.
