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
       scanners:

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

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

       /usr/local/lib/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
              configuration file is searched in two default directories:
              first, the current working directory (".") and then in
              /usr/local/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 "/usr/local/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
