2010.01.04 22:32 "[Tiff] file name gone from error messages, why?", by Olivier Paquet
In the process of upgrading to 4.0.0 I noticed that error messages
from libtiff no longer print the file name. eg. what used to be:
text-1.tif: ThunderDecode: Not enough data at scanline 320 (0 != 1512)
is now simply:
ThunderDecode: Not enough data at scanline 320 (0 != 1512)
a quick look at a few files in CVS show this happening in the BigTIFF merge so there isn't any detail as to why it happened. I couldn't find anything in the list archive either.
So, does anyone have a clue why this was removed? Would anyone object to putting it back in? Or is there some other "new way" of getting the same result?
Having the file name is obviously very handy if you're trying to figure out the source of an error in an application which reads/writes hundreds of files.
