1994.01.20 13:45 "Too many Endians...", by Randy Myers

I realize that "well behaved" TIFF readers are supposed to handle either
big- or little-endian input.  However, the real world contains at least
one reader (Plexus) that insists on little-endian TIFF images.  Naturally,
we run TIFF library code on a big-endian server.

Has anyone experimented with modifying the library to generate output with
endianness other than that of the executing system?  A solution that
addresses only bi-tonal images would be adequate to our needs.
