I've runned into 'abscure' problem:
The tiff-viewer which is integrated in the application software will _only_ 'view' tiff's where:
(from tiffinfo) TIFF Directory at offset 0x8.
Senario: Tiff produced from the OCR software produce a tiff where the offset is 0x8. But when I run tiffcp on this file I get: (from tiffinfo) TIFF Directory at offset 0x1ac4. And the application isn't able to show the image.
Yes, I know: switch viewer. But it's an old applicaton and so on..
What I hoped to do: Rewrite/modify tiffcp to force the TIFF Directory offset to start at 0x8.
Hope this made some sense..
