[sane-devel] Can SANE backend do this

The scanner/driver detected the feeder out of document too 
fast for me to do the Ctrl-C.  I think it perhaps working for 
you because you scanner wait for the next intruction.  
However, the Fujitsu doesn't seem to do that. 
Here is what it looks like. 
[root at voip scanOutput]# scanimage --batch --format=tiff 
Scanning -1 pages, incrementing by 1, numbering from 1 
Scanning page 1 
Scanned page 1. (scanner status = 5) 
Scanning page 2 
Scanned page 2. (scanner status = 5) 
Scanning page 3 
Scanned page 3. (scanner status = 5) 
Scanning page 4 
scanimage: sane_start: Document feeder out of documents 
Do you know the syntax to combine all individual scanned  
files into one either .tiff or pdf file?  
Thanks again
