|Description:||Scanner Access Now Easy (1.0.24-1)|
SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner, video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). The SANE API is public domain and its discussion and development is open to everybody.
Edit /sw/etc/sane.d/dll.conf to enable only specific backends for a noticeable performance gain.
