2012.06.06 05:05 "[Tiff] Custom and EXIF directory read/write", by Frank Warmerdam

Folks,

I have been working to harden libtiff4 somewhat and one area of problems I have encountered is when custom tags in non-image directories (like EXIF) have the same tag values as real TIFF tags (often through file fuzzing). This results in various kinds of crashes. I have made a bunch of changes to make this more bulletproof.

In order to avoid too many future regressions in this complicated area I wanted to add a test program for custom and exif directory handling and I discovered (as many have before) that libtiff does not support creating EXIF or custom directories. However, it was very close.

So I have added two new functions:

 TIFFCreateCustomDirectory()
 TIFFCreateEXIFDirectory()

Unfortunately to create or read custom directories with predefined fields it is necessary to include the private tif_dir.h. However, this is not needed for EXIF directories which have a predefined schema.

I have attached the test program which briefly demonstrates creating and reading EXIF and custom directories.

All code is now in CVS.

Possibly I already mentioned it, but I also added a new test program for JPEG-in-TIFF last week including the "raw" IO interface. This has been another very fragile and bug prone area.

Best regards,
