Does FreeBSD support in any way the TWAIN API? If not, what is the API that could be used to read data from imaging devices (webcams) - preferably in a portable way.


The FOSS scanner/imaging API is SANE. You may need to install Linux compatibility files in order to allow it to access the webcam as a V4L device.
