I have a question regarding PackBits compression. There might be some description about this somewhere, but I haven't found it so far, so...

there is a description of the algorithm in the TIFF V6 spec, wich is - I assume - at Adobe's web site somewhere.

When image data is compressed in TIFFWriteEncodedStrip() by PackBits algorithm, is the data compressed in the unit of a line or in the unit of a strip?

Data is _always_ cpmpressed in units of strips or tiles, respectively
