xcam(1)			    General Commands Manual		       xcam(1)

NAME
       xcam - a	graphical camera frontend for SANE

SYNOPSIS
       xcam [--buffer|-B] [--version|-V] [--help|-h]

DESCRIPTION
       xcam  provides  a graphical user-interface to control an	image acquisi-
       tion device such	as a flatbed scanner or	a camera.  It allows  scanning
       invidual	images and can be invoked directly from	the command-line.

       xcam  acts  as  a  stand-alone  program that saves acquired images in a
       suitable	PNM format (PBM	for black-and-white images, PGM	for  grayscale
       images, and PPM for color images).

       xcam  accesses  image acquisition devices through the SANE (Scanner Ac-
       cess Now	Easy) interface.  The list of available	devices	depends	on in-
       stalled hardware	and configuration.

       xcam presents a menu listing of all known and available devices.

OPTIONS
       If  the --Buffer	(-B) option is given, xcam will	use a 1024 kByte input
       buffer instead of the default 32	kByte.

       If the --version	(-V) option is given, xcam  will  output  its  version
       number.

       The --help (-h) xcam flag prints	a short	summary	of options.

       SANE_DEBUG_XCAM
	      This  environment	 variable controls the debug level xscanimage.
	      Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the	output.

			    Value  Descsription
			    0	   print fatal errors
			    1	   print errors
			    2	   print warnings
			    3	   print information messages
			    4	   print everything

			    Example:
			    SANE_DEBUG_XCAM=3

FILES
       $HOME/.sane/xcam/devicename.rc
	      For each device, there is	one rc-file that holds the saved  set-
	      tings  for  that	particular device.  Normally, this file	should
	      not be manipulated directly.  Instead, the user should  use  the
	      xcam  interface  to  select appropriate values and then save the
	      device settings using the	 "Preferences->Save  as	 default  set-
	      tings" menubar entry.
