Hello all,

I have been asked a question about the Sam Leffler TIFF library that I was unable to answer.

The question is as follows:

Using the TIFF library, how would you add a simple string (example - "HELLO WORLD") at the bottom of a TIFF (group 4) image file. Note that a UNIX C program exists to copy TIFF files to a HP 5S printer that has a special card to handle TIFF files, but a simple string is needed at the bottom of each file.

I have noticed routines like TIFFWriteRawStrip, TIFFWriteRawTile, etc. Would these routines help, or does some sort of annotation function exist?

Any examples would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for any help,
