2000.12.01 10:07 "AW: Problem with CCITT Group 4 file", by Bartz, Klaus
I've got the file from Stefan.
It's not a libtiff bug, it's a buggy file.
In it there is simple a wrong 8 byte to short StripByteCount ( may be at computing the programm has forgotten the 8 bytes of the file header ). The "strip loader" of libtiff fails in line -1 (before decoding the first line ), if it cannot load the referenced size.
The question is, should libtiff be able to handle such a buggy file, or not? The old question. What of the nice ideas of programmers should be tolerated, what not.
