in reply to TWAIN Issues and Perl

Personally, I'd probably fork out $35 for Dosadi's (the writers of the EZTWAIN library around which Win32::Scanner::EZTWAIN is wrapped) Aquire command line utility. It has a switch which will try to negotiate with your TWAIN device to prevent the user interface being displayed. This is the source of the popups you see when using EZTWAIN rather than EZTWAIN itself.

You can even download a copy and try for 7 days to make sure it does what you need before you purchase.

Well It's better than the Abottoire, but Yorkshire!

    Thanks BrowserUk!

    I downloaded the trial of Acquire, and it works for me.

    <whines>but i wanted to make a free, perl-based alternative to the webcam software out there now. </whines>
    I guess I better keep looking.

      John. Glad it helped a little at least.

      Have you looked around Dosadi's site? They also have a package (under Products) called CTwain, which is a library with source for use in building TWAIN apps. Their licencing is very generous in that it "may be freely used for non-commercial purposes". It is designed for exactly your purpose I think.

      They also have a support dept. which, going by my one intereaction with them, seems very knowledgable, efficient and flexible. A rarity these days.

      I'd suggest you contact them, tell them what you are trying to do, and maybe they will be able to give you some pointers. Good luck
