I'm really looking forward to having this work on win32.

  fp = fopen( "foo.tif", "rb");
  TIFFFdOpen(fileno(fp),"r");

Earlier on this list it was mentioned that the default win32 I/O behaviour might be changed to allow this - for the next release. Is that still on track?

Jeff,

It wasn't my understanding that this would become the default but it is very easy to build libtiff to use tif_unix.c for IO instead of tif_win32.c. I think Andrey was going to work a few quirks out to ensure it is very easy though I have never had any trouble doing that. With tif_unix, your example should work fine.

Best regards,
