Hello,

I want to append a directory to an existing TIFF file.

My question is must I take care about endianess (by forcing the endianess of the appended file to its original endianess)?

I have an old TIFF documentation that say "Cannot append to file that opposite byte ordering.... This is a limitation of the library." but the last doc doesn't say that.

If the input image is little-endian and I append on a big-endian machine, what will be the result endianess? (little-endian ?)

Thanks in advance for your help,

Julien
