NAME
       sane-dc210 - SANE backend for Kodak DC210 Digital Camera

DESCRIPTION
       The  sane-dc210	library	 implements  a	SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the Kodak DC210	camera.	 THIS  IS  EX-
       TREMELY ALPHA CODE!  USE	AT YOUR	OWN RISK!!

DEVICE NAMES
       The  current  version  of the backend only allows one camera to be con-
       nected.	The device name	is always "0".

CONFIGURATION
       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	exces-
       sively  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) 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:

	      port=/dev/ttyS0
	      #	this is	a comment
	      baud=115200
	      dumpinquiry
	      cmdrespause=125000
	      breakpause=1000000

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dc210.conf
	      The  backend  configuration  file	 (see  also   description   of
	      SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-dc210.a
	      The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-dc210.so
	      The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
	      that support dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT
       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
	      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 config-
	      uration file is searched in two default directories: first,  the
	      current	working	  directory   (".")   and   then  in  /usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/sane.d.  If the value of the environment	variable  ends
	      with  the	directory separator character, then the	default	direc-
	      tories are searched after	the explicitly specified  directories.
	      For example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would re-
	      sult   in	  directories	"tmp/config",	".",   and   "/usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order).

       SANE_DEBUG_DC210
	      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
       Brian J.	Murrell

       This backend is based somewhat on the dc25  backend  included  in  this
       package by Peter	Fales.

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

BUGS
       Known bugs/limitations are: ?

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