[sane-devel] multipage scans

About 6 times a year I need to scan a stack of papers, between 10 and 50

I have a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100

I put a page in place, run:

juser at cnt3:~/temp$ scanimage -v >image.pnm
scanimage: scanning image of size 2592x3450 pixels at 1 bits/pixel
scanimage: acquiring gray frame
scanimage: read 1117800 bytes in total

When I run that,  nothing happens for a few seconds, then it spins the feed
rollers, paper goes though, good.

I could put that in a bash loop with a read, scan, hit enter, scan, hit
enter... ^C

I am hoping there is support for the button.

Or something a little more elegant than ^c.

Not sure if I care about creating a multipage file, it would be handy for
keeping track of the batches of scans, but I need to split it into separate
files to process, so that doesn't help.
