Hi,

A question which came up in a discussion this morning. Does PDF allows filesize to be greater than 4 GB?

Discussion was about tifftools, and if/when they would grow 'big' too.

Would these tools become bigtiff specific or would they handle bigtiff and classic tiff transparantly?

Linking them with both lib's could introduce namespace conflicts I guess.

Having separate tools for classic and big would give double code bases for every tool implying a serious synchronisation effort.

Opinions?

regards,
rob
