This work builds upon the work of others. I'd like to offer thanks to
the following folks.
- Sean Reifschneider of
opened the dialog with Bell and Howell and wrote the first Open Source
scanning program, bnhscan, for Bell and Howell Copiscan II scanners
for Linux. He did all the trail blazing hard work with amazing efficiency
and style. He provided a wonderful example of the amazingly successful
results that can be acheived through open, cooperative approaches.
- Jon Postyn of
JLP Computer Enterprises Corporation
was a key player in putting
together the imaging solution for our client in New York City which allowed
us to get into the document imaging solutions arena on Linux. His vast
experience in imaging solutions on other platforms was invaluable in
providing the confidence to continue forward when challenges were met
along the way. Also, he and his staff at JLP provided a warm and cozy
home to me (and the scanner) during development.
- David Mosberger and the rest of the
SANE development team have done
some great work in bringing a sound architectural approach to scanning
in the Open Source arena. The SANE effort has made great strides in
bringing together various programming efforts and providing a common
framework which allows the whole to be even greater than the sum of the
- The developers and maintainers of
GIMP Toolkit (GTK+) and the
GIMP. The GTK+ puts an attractive
GUI face on the scanning frontends and provides a solid and
flexible API for handling the dynamic nature of the GUI necessary
to expose the variable functionality of SANE backends. Also, the GIMP
is great for creating graphics for our web pages.
