I'm no longer active in developing SANE drivers. Please send any comments or support requests to the sane-devel mailing list.


This page describes the test backend. The test backend is a SANE backend (driver) designed to test frontends and as an example of what SANE is able to do. No scanner or other device is needed for this driver, so frontend programmers can test the more obscure scan modes and options also. Everything the pnm backend can do (but reading PNM files) is supported. For detailed documentation have a look at the manual page (sane-test). The test-pictures are explained on the test-picture page.

There is also a frontend for backend-testing (tstbackend) from Frank Zago. This is just the "opposite" of my test backend.


The test backend is included in sane-backends-1.0.8 and later.
