Hi all!

I'm using tiffcp (v 3.5.5. on solaris ) to copy a tiff-file ( this is produced on an Intel-pc with scanner) and the output file will be processed and printed from a Windoze PC which have a print system. The

print system has problem with reading the tiff-file(s). IMNSHO: I suspect the there are some

hardcoded stuff in the Windows sytem which has the problems.

Is there any way to force tiffcp ( or some function calls to make it use little endian)?
