1999.06.16 00:10 "Is there a bug in TIFFGetField for ICC profiles?", by Terry Wells

Hi,

I vaguely remember something like this coming up before, but it only matters to me now so I guess I need to ask again. You know how it goes... :-)

I'm trying to look at a TIFF file and determine if it contains an ICC profile.

My code looks something like:

    if (TIFFGetField(tif, TIFFTAG_ICCPROFILE, &profileLength, &profileData))

The problem is, TIFFGetField always returns TRUE, even if the file does not contain a profile.

I dug through the library briefly (beta037), but didn't locate anything obviously wrong.

If anyone else has noticed and/or debugged this, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks so much,
Terry
