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, handheld scanner, video and still cameras, framegrabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is public domain and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The source code is written for UNIX (including Linux) and is available under the GPL, but commercial applications and backends are welcome. The package contains the libraries, net support, and scanimage. The X frontends xscanimage and xcam can be found in sane-frontends.
This package contains frontends to SANE ("Scanner Access Now Easy"), including xscanimage, xcam, and scanadf. Xscanimage is a GTK-based application for scanning images that can also be used as a GIMP-plugin. Xcam is used to get images from cameras supported by SANE. Scanadf is a command line frontend especially suited for scanners equipped with automatic document feeders (ADF).
tdsdump allows capture and printing of encapsulated postscript output from Tektronix TDS210, TDS220, and TDS224 digital oscilloscopes that have the TDS2CM option installed. It captures the serial data stream from the scope, and captures the content between the %PS-Adobe and %%EOF tags (inclusive) in the data, optionally spooling the result to a printer. This allows the scope to screen dump without a dedicated printer.
