1994.01.20 13:45 "Too many Endians...", by Randy Myers

I realize that "well behaved" TIFF readers are supposed to handle either big- or little-endian input. However, the real world contains at least one reader (Plexus) that insists on little-endian TIFF images. Naturally, we run TIFF library code on a big-endian server.

Has anyone experimented with modifying the library to generate output with endianness other than that of the executing system? A solution that addresses only bi-tonal images would be adequate to our needs.
