my initial question was about reading a compressed image of 4420 lines in one band -- libtiff wants to buffer the whole strip; in this case it's the whole image.
The answer I got was a definitive 'no way'...
OK, I buy that; libtiff is designed as a workstation library -- much memory available. what do people do who are using libtiff in embedded / low-memory applications?
I still need to handle the problem image - is there some way to implement a 'null' codec to get me the image data so that I can go off to the side and decompress it line-by-line?
or do I even need to implement anything? -- could I just rewrite the compression type for this image as 'none'?
any other possibilities / suggestions?
