[sane-devel] LIDE 25 scanner as a single-line CCD detector with plustek backend

I am refering to this message I found in the archives from Bernardo
Just as Bernardo, I try to figure out a way to use the line-CCD from a
used Canon LIDE 25 scanner as a measuring device to sense light
intensities impinging the CCD-detector. The device works with the
plustek backend. All the mechanics and the integrated lamp are of no use
for this (or even disturbing) and I am afraid I will break the device by
"de-installing" those parts manually, since the checking routines might
fail in this case.
I would very much appreciate if you could give me some hints where it
might be promising to have a closer look in the plustek-backend-codes.
If figured that some of the initialising routings are part of the
plustek-usb modules as well as some of the "mechanical" routines. But I
am a bit lost, since I am far from understanding, where which routine
shakes hand with another.
However, I have to admit, that my experiences in C and device
programming are rather basic. (So I'd better not try this... But I want
to learn it.)
So, thanks in advance.
