NAMEsane-hpsj5s - SANE backend for HP ScanJet 5S sheetfed scanner
DESCRIPTIONThe sane-hpsj5s library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to parallel port Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 5S scaner.
IMPORTANT: this is alpha code. Don't expect this to work correctly. Many functions are missing, others contain errors. In some cases, your computer might even hang. It cannot be excluded (although I consider it extremely unprobable) that your scanner will be damaged.
LIMITATIONS: For now this backend works only at Linux platform.This limitation is due dependance on libieee1284 library. If your system supports libieee1284 too, this backend should work. If you ported libieee1284 for you platform, please let me know.Your system should support EPP (or EPP+ECP ) mode to operate this scaner. Future versions will support ECP and SPP (Nibble and Byte) modes also. It's planned to support for scaners not only at 0 daisy-chain position, but at any one. Support for multiple scaners could be implemented too.
Current version implements only gray scale scaning. True Color and B/W modes are not supported for now.
That said, TESTERS ARE WELCOME. Send your bug reports and comments to Max Vorobiev <email@example.com>.
DEVICE NAMESThis backend expects device names of the form:
CONFIGURATIONThe contents of the hpsj5s.conf file is a list of parport names that correspond to HP ScanJet 5S scanners. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. Only one device name can be listed in hpsj5s.conf for this moment. Future versions will support daisy chain selection.
It seems that HP ScanJet 5S scaner uses software noise correction. This feature is not implemented for now. So does gamma correction and calibration. I'll handle it in future versions. Native resolution for this scaner is 300 DPI. Other modes could be jagged in some ways.
