NAME

       sane-dc210 - SANE backend for Kodak DC210 Digital Camera


DESCRIPTION

       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!!


DEVICE NAMES

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


CONFIGURATION

       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).  Supported 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:

              port=/dev/ttyS0
              # this is a comment
              baud=115200
              dumpinquiry
              cmdrespause=125000
              breakpause=1000000


FILES

       /etc/sane.d/dc210.conf
              The  backend  configuration  file  (see  also   description   of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-dc210.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-dc210.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).


ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
              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 config‐
              uration 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  sepa‐
              rator 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).

       SANE_DEBUG_DC210
              If the library was compiled with debugging support enabled, this
              environment variable controls the debug level for this  backend.
              A  value of 128 requests maximally copious debug output; smaller
              levels reduce verbosity.

AUTHOR

       Brian J. Murrell

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

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