Dear TIFF forum members,

Is there any possibility to let the following simple (modified) sample
from http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-libtiff/ use the
tiffbuffer instead of writing the output.tif to the filesystem?

I'll need this, because I'm trying to write mxf files (single large
file),
which will contain a sequence of DNG/TIFF images...

Thanks in advance
Johann

tiffbuffer[25*144*2];

  TIFF *image;

  // Open the TIFF file
  if((image = TIFFOpen("output.tif", "w")) == NULL){
    printf("Could not open output.tif for writing\n");
    exit(42);
