sane-hp5590      -      SANE      backend      for      Hewlett-Packard
   4500C/4570C/5500C/5550C/5590/7650 Workgroup/Document scanners


   The sane-hp5590 library implements a SANE  (Scanner  Access  Now  Easy)
   backend   that   provides   access  to  the  following  Hewlett-Packard
   Workgroup/Document scanners:

          ScanJet 4500C
          ScanJet 4570C
          ScanJet 5500C
          ScanJet 5550C
          ScanJet 5590
          ScanJet 7650

   If you own a scanner other than the ones listed above that  works  with
   this  backend,  please  let us know this by sending the scanner's exact
   model  name  and  the  USB   vendor   and   device   ids   (e.g.   from
   /proc/bus/usb/devices,  sane-find-scanner or syslog) to us. Even if the
   scanner's name is only slightly different  from  the  models  mentioned
   above, please let us know.


   None required.


          The static library implementing this backend.

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


          If the library was compiled with  debug  support  enabled,  this
          environment  variable controls the debug level for this backend.
          Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of  the  output.  See
          used levels below.

          Level 10 - generic processing
          Level 20 - verbose backend messages
          Level 40 - HP5590 high-level commands
          Level 50 - HP5590 low-level (USB-in-USB) commands
