NAME

       sane-tamarack - SANE backend for Tamarack flatbed scanners


DESCRIPTION

       The  sane-tamarack  library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the following  Tamarack  flatbed  scan‐
       ners:

              Artiscan 6000C
              Artiscan 8000C
              Artiscan 12000C


DEVICE NAMES

       This backend expects device names of the form:

              special

       Where  special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds
       to a SCSI scanner. The special device  name  must  be  a  generic  SCSI
       device  or  a  symlink to such a device.  The program sane-find-scanner
       helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a  device  name
       could  be  /dev/sga  or  /dev/sge,  for  example.  See sane-scsi(5) for
       details.


FILES

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

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

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-tamarack.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_TAMARACK
              If  the  library  was  compiled with debug support enabled, this
              environment variable controls the debug level for this  backend.
              Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

              Example: export SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK=4
