in particular genesys_gl847
a query or two about <backend>.conf file
1) do all, most, some backends support such runtime argument
2) i see scanimage is checking for and reading ./genesys.conf
3) i've tried to enter options in ./genesys.conf, but have
not been able to get them to a) work or b) cause an
error or warning. is there anyplace in the sane documentation
world that defines/describes the format for these arguments
placed in a <backend.conf> file?
i seem to think i've seen something like that but i'm not
able to re-find it! rtfm'ed sane.7, scanimage, sane-genesys
sane-test and grep'ed around looking for '\.conf'
ah-ha! sane-u12 -- but those lines don't work either
tried lots of variations including
option flag arg
if anyone provides guidance even if pointer(s) to relevant code
i will take/make time to write-up a manpageish file and submit
for incorporation ...
