I am new into programing, but interested in using MICROSOFT VISUAL C++ to open and read the values (DIGITAL NUMBERS) in a TIFF file.
As far as I understand by now is that therefore I need to tell the C compiler where to find the required header files, allow the linker to find the library binary files of LIBTIFF and tell the linker to link in the correct LIBTIFF library file.
I tried to do this by going after the following LIBTIFF tutorial: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/graphics/Courses/cs-638-1999/libtiff_tutorial.htm
But my problem is, that I can not find the dlibtiff.lib library mentioned there and if I follow those steps without it I won’t be able to run my C program.
Maybe someone can help me to enable C++ for opening and reading TIFF files. Any kind of help is appreciated.
