Hi,

I've gotten beyond my libtiff v.3.5.7 troubles and can now read jpeg encoded images line by line. I ported 3.7.3 and it seems to be working well.

In an attempt to save memory and to read native pixel values (instead of RGBA) I'm calling TIFFReadScanline() for an image, [tiffinfo below] and that func is ultimately calling TIFFFillStrip() which tries to malloc about 66M to buffer the whole thing - which is more memory than what we have.

this image is one strip of 4420 lines; is there a way/cheat/hack to _really_ access it one line at a time, w/o buffering the whole thing?

thanks,

Mark Pilon mpilon@midrivers.com
