       sane-dc210 - SANE backend for Kodak DC210 Digital Camera

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

       The current version of the backend only allows one camera to  be  connected.   The  device
       name is always "0".

       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).  Sup-
       ported 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:

	      # this is a comment

	      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).

	      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 order).

	      If the library was compiled with debugging support enabled, this environment  vari-
	      able  controls the debug level for this backend.	A value of 128 requests maximally
	      copious debug output; smaller levels reduce verbosity.

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

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

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