seeing as jpegs can be imbedded in tiffs i thought some could answer my question.
I've just started writing code (in c) to load a jfif compliant jpeg into memory. I've noticed in the file im trying to read that it is made up of markers such as FF D8 -> SOI, or FF DB -> Data Quantization Table marker. However having browsed through jpeg fine interchange format spec 1.01 and 1.02 http://www.w3.org/Graphics/JPEG/jfif.txt <http://www.w3.org/Graphics/JPEG/jfif.txt>
it seems to put an SOF marker after the SOI marker.
I was wondering if these markers can appear in
- any order, in which case I would would be inclined to parse the whole file and put the contents of each marker/struct into a super struct that i could then parse. or
the markers follow a particular order.
option 1 would be more flexible i suppose and would be slightly similar to how the TIFF file format works
