Dear all,

thanks for developing TIFFlib!

Having the need to read in a custom third party format, I'm looking for a portable way

of reading TIFF_BYTE data of variable length not part of a tag but linked by a tag.

The tag is giving me back a tiff-offset where I will find the info I need.

Is there any routine doing the job? I didn't found any by various lookings through the help.

May be you can give me some hints not to disturb TIFFlib more than necessary by

using some internal routine, otherwise I will try do directly take the file handle and seek and read as I like, but sounds a nasty solution.

Thanks for any help!

Sebastian
