Thanks for the reply!

Probably I have not been clear enough. It’s not me who needs to read those files. I need to write code which would allow our customers to read such files. Of course, I could write code which replaces libtiff and parses the file by itself, and I have done so in the past (for limited variations of the TIFF zoo), and BTW that’s how I know that the second half of the array is really there.

It’s just that we are aiming to use libtiff in the production instead of homegrown code. In general we have been able to coerce it into doing what we want in the past, so we were hoping this is the case also now. Basically all we need is the offset of the raw array in the file.
