I try to convert a tiff file from none compression to g3:1d with tiffcp, but the exit code is 9. I have seen the source, but I don't find what it means and where are the "exit(-9)" command.
The exact command is:
tiffcp -i -c g3:1d -f lsb2msb -r 999 a.tif b.tif
Can you help me?
I have tifflib 3.5.7
I happen to remember that 3.5.7 (which is very old now) had a bug in which tiffcp didn't return with any specific exit status, thus often causing a non-zero exit status when everything was fine. This problem is fixed in newer versions.
Thanks, but I must use 3.5.7 because I'm working with hylafax. It use 3.5.7 by default because with 3.6.1 it has a problems. See:
I try to use libtiff 3.7.x and it's all ok.
I send a request to hylafax developers to upgrade to libtiff 3.7.x. I hope they hear me :)
