	      -d<device-uri> or --device=<device-uri>

       To specify a CUPS printer:
	      -p<printer> or --printer=<printer>

MODE
       Run in interactive mode:
	      -i or --interactive

	      tion=<resolution_in_dpi> where 300 is default.

       Image resize:
	      --resize=<scale_in_%> (min=1%, max=400%, default=100%)

       Image contrast:
	      -c=<contrast> or --contrast=<contrast> The contrast range varies
	      from device to device.

       Image brightness:

	      'px', or 'pt' ('mm' is default).

       Scan area:
	      -a<tlx>,<tly>,<brx>,<bry>	   or	--area=<tlx>,<tly>,<brx>,<bry>
	      Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner	 of  the  scan
	      area.   Units  for  tlx,	tly,  brx,  and	 bry  are specified by

       Scan box:
	      --box=<tlx>,<tly>,<width>,<height>  tlx  and tly coordinates are
