`Scanner Access Now Easy' is a universal interface that lets you get images from any device that produces raster images, including flatbed scanners, video and still cameras, and frame grabbers. With SANE you can write image-processing applications without worrying about peculiarities of individual devices. SANE also makes it possible to write a device driver once and only once, which t then can be used by any SANE-compliant application. SANE includes several scanner front-ends: scanimage, a command-line interface; xscanimage, a graphical front-end; and xcam, for acquiring images continuously from cameras.
