Folks,

I am trying to read a big-endian 16 bits per sample image on a little endian system, and it seems that libtiff isn't swapping the data into little endian order for me in TIFFReadTile() (or presumably TIFFReadStrip()).

My questions are:

Clearly, if the handling of byte swapping is changed in libtiff, the new release will have to go out with a substantial warning as it will break applications that handling the byte swapping themselves.

Best regards,
