NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sane-tamarack - SANE backend for Tamarack flatbed scanners

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  sane-tamarack  library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the following  Tamarack	flatbed  scanners:

	      Artiscan 6000C
	      Artiscan 8000C
	      Artiscan 12000C

DEVICE NAMES    [Toc]    [Back]

       This backend expects device names of the form:


       Where  special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds
       to a SCSI scanner. The special device  name  must  be  a  generic  SCSI
       device  or  a  symlink to such a device.  The program sane-find-scanner
       helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a  device  name
       could  be  /dev/sga  or	/dev/sge,  for	example.  See sane-scsi(5) for

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_TAMARACK    [Toc]    [Back]
	      If  the  library	was  compiled with debug support enabled, this
	      environment variable controls the debug level for this  backend.
	      Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

	      Example: export SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK=4
