NAME
       xcam - a graphical camera frontend for SANE

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

DESCRIPTION
       xcam  provides a graphical user-interface to control an image acquisition 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 Access Now Easy)  inter-
       face.  The list of available devices depends on installed hardware and configuration.

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

OPTIONS
       If  the --buffersize (-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 settings for that par-
	      ticular 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  settings"  menubar
	      entry.
