  Description     : Tools to test USB webcams using Sunplus chips

This set of tools are provide to test WebCam under Linux. Especially
camera based on Sunplus chips, but that should work with some others
cameras too.You need knowledge of Linux to use these tools and we don't
provide any GUI interface for a large public area. These tools are
design to: test, improve, perform our Kernel module in a lot of
situations and provide usefull API for developer . As others projects in
the Linux World we don't have any help, documentation from SunPlus
compagny. All that great work use Reverse Engeneering to provide
interoperabilities of our WebCam device. At this times, we support up to
40 Webcams from a lot of compagnies: (Aiptek, Mustek, Intel, Grandtec,
Maxell, Genius, Dlink, Kodak, Creative, Logitech, Benq, ViewQuest.. )
and only one driver can deal with all, strange Linux World :)

This software is intended to support the spca5xx device driver. They may
be combined into a single package, discussions with upstream are in
progress on this matter.
