Raster image scanner library and drivers, with scanner support

SANE is an application programming interface (API) and communication protocol that regulate communication between software and digital imaging devices, such as image scanners and digital cameras. It's also a scanner server which allows you share your stand-alone scanner or your printer-combo scanner over the network.

SANE stands for Scanner Access Now Easy and is an API providing access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner, video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.).

The package contains the library, drivers, the command line frontend scanimage, the sane-find-scanner utility and the saned server.
