1993.11.17 13:54 "can i decompress a raw lzw strip with uncompress?", by Thies Arntzen
i'd like to decompress a lwz tiff myself! (because i'm going to transmitt it over modem, and i do not want to setup the whole tifflib on the other (macintosh) side. i do have an lzw (unix-compress) compatible decompressor on the mac....)
i get the STRIPOFFSET and STRIPBYTECOUNT from the tiff, then i read the strip myself (seek & read) to transmit it - but uncompress doesn't seem to like the "raw" data!!!
now my question:
is the lzw code in the tifflib compatible to unix's compress & uncompress, or are the differences (header?) so small that it can be converted "on the fly"?
thanx in advance,
