Hi -

I'm new to LibTIFF and I've been studying the docs. I've perused a few sample programs start out with the supposed foreknowledge that the raster is stored as strips or tiles, and that does not sit well with the cautious programmer in me i.e., one day such a program will encounter raster thats written in the *other* format(?).

Whats the best approach to writing a does one write a flexible reader i.e., determining the beforehand if the data is stored as strips or tiles?

Thanks,
