gscan2pdf is a GUI to ease the process of producing PDFs or DjVus from
scanned documents. You scan one or several pages in with File/Scan, and
create a PDF of selected pages with File/Save PDF. At maturity, the GUI
will have similar features to that of the Windows Imaging program, but
with the express objective of writing a PDF, including metadata.
Scanning is handled with SANE via scanimage. PDF conversion is done by
libtiff. Perl is used for portability and ease of programming, with
gtk2-perl for the GUI. This should therefore work more or less out of
the box on any system with gtk2-perl, scanimage, and libtiff.
GScan2PDF 1.8.8 Changelog:
Filter out 1 and 2 digit integers from tool warnings. Show original message, not filtered message.
Add option to profile only after successfully applying it

online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of
instructions to the microcontroller on the board.
