  1. I want know whether all kinds of compression schemes possible within a TIFF file, are supported by libtiff?
  2. Do we need to install separate patches for supporting some/all of those?
  3. If there are any licensing issues with installing those patches? (e.g. I have come to know that for supporting lzw compression we need to install a patch and also need to buy out a license for using the same)
  4. Apart from 8, 16, 32 and so on, bits per sample TIFF images, are there any other bit per sample TIFF images possible e.g. 1, 2, 4, 9, 17 and like wise other bits per sample images.
