[sane-devel] mac os x

You don't have a USB scanner driver like on a Linux machine,
that's the reason why there is no device file in the /dev
directory. USB works differently on OS X. That's the reason
why using something like libusb makes sense: It hides the
operating system specifics, and you can use the same API
on every architecuture - as long as it actually works.
If you want to help, learn how to program the USB ports and
fix libusb :-) I am trying to understand all the Mac USB
stuff in libusb, but so far without too much success.
