       sane-sp15c - SANE backend for Fujitsu ScanPartner 15C flatbed scanner

       The  sane-sp15c	library	 implements  a	SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend which provides access to	 the  Fujitsu  flatbed	scanners.   At
       present,	the following scanner is known to work with these backend:

	      Vendor:  Model:		Rev:
	      -------- ----------------	-----
	      FCPA     ScanPartner 15C	1.01

       The  ScanPartner	15C driver supports lineart (1-bit), halftone (1-bit),
       grayscale (4-bit	and 8-bit), and	color (3 x 8-bit) scanning.

       Other scanners in these families	may work.  The ScanPartner  15C	 seems
       to  be a	repackaging of the ScanPartner 600C.  People are encouraged to
       try these driver	with the other scanners	and to contact the author with
       test results.

       A  modest  effort  has  been made to expose the standard	options	to the
       API.  This allows frontends such	as xscanimage to set scanning  region,
       resolution,  bit-depth  (and  color), and enable	the automatic document

       Testing limited to a Linux 2.2.5	kernel
       Can't  quite  get  the scan page/minute performance in ADF modes.  This
       may be due to limited system buffer size.

       I'm sure	there are plenty, and not too well hidden, but I haven't  seen
       them yet.
       Both  scanners  claim to	have separate control of resolution in X and Y
       directions.  I confess I	haven't	tested this yet.  I  have  found  that
       xsane doesn't even display this capability.
       Threshold  settings  on	the  SP15C don't seem to affect	the results of
       lineart mode scans.
       It might	be possible to merge these two	drivers	 without  much	effort
       since  the  SP15C driver	was derived from the M3096G driver.  They were
       split so	as to keep the second driver  development  from	 breaking  the
       working first driver.  Watch this space for changes.
