sane-escl — SANE backend for eSCL scanners

Description

The sane-escl library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to eSCL protocol scanners.

The "escl" backend for SANE supports AirScan/eSCL devices that announce themselves on mDNS as _uscan._utcp or _uscans._utcp. If the device is available, the "escl" backend recovers these capacities. The user configures and starts scanning. A list of devices that use the eSCL protocol can be found at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201311. While these devices are expected to work, your mileage may vary.

Files

/etc/sane.d/escl.conf

The backend configuration file.

/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-escl.a

The static library implementing this backend.

/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-escl.so

The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).

Environment

SANE_DEBUG_ESCL

If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment variable controls the debug level for this backend.  E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output to be printed.  Smaller levels reduce verbosity.
