I have converted some of the .prn files to tiff files,and in case of multipage document file, I have used tiffcp() function to append 2 files, but somestimes it gives me an error

"modeTIFFOpen:<destination tiff file given in tiffcp command>:Cannot open"

.... could anyone tell me, under what condition this error could have possibly occured??????.. because this error is not occcured always, but only sometimes I get that error.

Using "grep" and/or a debugger will show you, that this error message is part of e.g. tif_unix.c and does exactly occur when open() fails.

There are a few obvious reasons why open() could fail.
