I apologise for not stating that I wanted the image data to be left in memory,
although I feel this was implicit in my question.

I also feel that my responses were justified in relation to some not very
friendly replies from this list. However, I conceed that the situation has been
exascerbated by my annoyance with not being able to find a solution to my
problem. Thankfully, I believe the TIFFClientOpen solution holds hope.

Your response leaves me in some doubt though -- do you refer to my responses to
other's mailings, or their responses to my question? I believe either is a
possible interpretation.

Thanks to those who have been helpful -- I'll let you know if I have any joy
with TIFFOpenClient.

Thanks,
Michael

Not to belabour the issue, but l I read your original question and noticed
that you hadn't indicated that you wanted the result left in memory.
However, I assumed that was what you wanted because otherwise the solution
was obvious.  Nonetheless your responses that I've seen have been
uncharacteristic of the traffic on the list and not very friendly (IMHO).

This software is not "open source"; it's free :-).  (I actually very much
hate the open source moniker that's become so trendy these days.)
Regardless the software predates most all of the current open source
initiatives and because of it's long history and stable format (at least
until recently) hasn't generated much traffic.  Aside from the warts caused
by my not doing much work on it the past few years, the code basically just
works and other than some of the newbie-style questions there's not much to
talk about.
