This is probably a FAQ, but I don't see an answer anywhere. Is libtiff supposed to support standard in/standard out a la Unix? If you look at TIFFClientOpen you'll see it doing strlen on the file name. This doesn't work for a null file name.

My question is whether this is a bug or a feature.

I think it's a feature, as TIFF files ar *NOT* stream files; for almost every operation on TIFF files you must have random access to tags, strips, tiles and so on.
