1994.12.01 18:51 "Re: Directory Access Time in TIFF Files", by Sam Leffler
- Is there a way to increase the speed of the directory access routines without modifying libtiff?
- Are there other features of libtiff that we can use instead of directories?
Not sure what this means, but probably no.
- Do you have any other suggestions?
Construct a private tag that has a table of contents of all the images in each file and use that to locate each IFD. I believe the latest code on sgi.com includes a call to let you set the current directory given a file offset; this was added for the SubIFD support.
