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

DESCRIPTION
       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 scan-
       ners and to contact the author with test results.

CONFIGURATION
       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 feeder.

       coolscan driver

LIMITATIONS
       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.

BUGS
       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  con-
       fess  I	haven't tested this yet.  I have found that xsane doesn't even display this capa-
       bility.
       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.
