What is the easiest way to use the TIFF library when one has large files whose raster image cannot be buffered in memory? Using TIFFRGBAImage one always has to allocate memory that can hold the whole structure. Is it possible to allocate memory for only one strip at a time *and* using some high-level interface for reading TIFF files?
