Hello again,

Further, I think what I would like to know is if libtiff supports tree structure natively. Instead, I can probably create a set of sub-directories and link them using tags. It is pretty like how we build a tree in C/C++ using pointers.

Kind regards,
Yimin

I am here for the first time! Thanks for help from Frank Warmerdam!

I am trying to create tags in tree structure, using libtiff. The idea is to
make a TIFFTAG_SUBIFD in sub-directory. But seems nested SUBIFDs are not
allowed. Is this direction correct? Please let me know if I am wrong.
I created a test case to start working with. It could help if people don't
want to create another one. ;) Please find it in attached file. Thank you!
