Where can I find information on how to modify the SANE backend for this model? If the value for document length is somehow sent to the scanner before the scan then I would like to be able to put in my own values for this. I think this way I could discover what the firmware limit is. Do you know where can I find information on how to modify the Canoscan 9000F backend driver or any information related to modifying/enhancing SANE scanner drivers? Thanks.

I am trying to modify a Canonscan 9000F scanner so that I can scan A4 width documents of any length beyond 11.7 inches. I can modify the scanner enclosure and extend or replace the glass platter. I need help with modifying the sane backend driver. Does anyone know if this is possible? How would I go about doing this? I Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks.
