Hi, we're using version 3.8.2 of the TIFF library (I think we'd downloaded it from remotesensing.org) and are running into problems parsing files greater than 2GB. This is the first time that we've ever dealt with files greater than this size. Here's the portion of our C++ code (it's been untouched for many years).

TIFF  *TIFFPtr = (TIFF *)0;

TIFFPtr = XTIFFOpen (imageFilename, "r");

retCode = TIFFGetField(TIFFPtr,  TIFFTAG_IMAGEWIDTH,  &myImageWidth);

It looks like either the call to XTIFFOpen is returning a null pointer or the call to TIFFGetField is returning a value of FALSE. I've seen references in the archives to other people with similar issues, but was wondering if there is some type of configuration value that I can change in version 3.8.2 to get this to work. Thanks!
