Hi,

How difficult would be to modify libtiff to support streams-like operations? Having random access files is not always possible - for example when reading from sockets, the file size is unknown.

One of the things that should change, if streams are to be supported, is get file size functions. They can not be used.

Do you think this is an easy change? For example using new switch for "stream i/o"?

Thanks,

Dimitar

P.S. I tried to use libtiff with streams and everything worked, except get file size.
