I have had no response to my request so I will post it one last time . .

I have a need for a function that can analyse TIFF images, which will be of
scanned periodicals (Newspapers, Magazines, Newsletters etc.) I need to 
look for whitespace as a guide to creating zones (OMNIPage 7 has this 
facility - but is very limited in quantity (64) and anything more complex is
rejected immediately.) To explain further, these files are scanned on one side
of the world and sent electronically to a _very_ large data warehouse processor 
which would dissect each file. (The zones containing text would then be OCR'd 
and the graphics would then be many pages of one new TIFF file.)

The only problem with my request is that I am  . . . a VB programmer, and not
too conversant with C, beyond DLL declarations and all that . . . sorry.

	I hope someone can help.
