DESCRIPTION
       The  sane-ibm library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) back-
       end that provides access to the IBM 2456 and the Ricoh IS-410,  IS-420,
       and  IS-430  flatbed  scanners.  Support  for  the IS-410 and IS-430 is
       untested. Please contact the maintainer or the sane-devel mailing  list
       if you own such a scanner.

       This  backend  is  alpha-quality.  It  may  have bugs and some scanners
       haven't been tested at all. Be careful and pull the plug if the scanner
       causes unusual noise.


DEVICE NAMES
       This backend expects device names of the form:

              special

       Where  special is either the path-name for the special device that cor-
       responds to a SCSI scanner. The program sane-find-scanner helps to find
       out  the  correct  device.  Under  Linux,  such  a device name could be
       /dev/sg0 or /dev/sga, for example.  See sane-scsi(5) for details.


CONFIGURATION
       The contents of the ibm.conf file is a list of device names that corre-
       spond  to  SCSI  scanners.   Empty lines and lines starting with a hash
       mark (#) are ignored.  See sane-scsi(5) on details of what  constitutes
       a valid device name.


FILES
       /etc/sane.d/ibm.conf
              The   backend   configuration  file  (see  also  description  of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-ibm.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-ibm.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT
       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
              This environment variable specifies the list of directories that
              may contain the configuration file.  Under UNIX, the directories
              are  separated  by a colon (`:'), under OS/2, they are separated
              by a semi-colon (`;').  If this variable is not set, the config-
              uration  file is searched in two default directories: first, the
              current working directory (".") and then in /etc/sane.d.  If the
              value  of the environment variable ends with the directory sepa-
              rator character, then the default directories are searched after
              the  explicitly  specified  directories.   For  example, setting
