After reviewing some of the online materials, I have seen a few references to TIFFINFO.DOC but cannot seem to locate this file in libtiff source archive. Can anyone point me in the right direction? This sounds like it would be quite useful.
One of the things that I am attempting to suss out is dumping several of the char** tags from some problem images we have. I have been looking at the TIFFGetField man page and the website http://www.libtiff.org but haven't found much. Can someone point me to an example?
The tags I am rather curious about are TIFFTAG_ARTIST, TIFFTAG_DATETIME, TIFFTAG_HOSTCOMPUTER, TIFFTAG_MAKE, TIFFTAG_MODEL, and TIFFTAG_SOFTWARE.
Also poking around the source code I have come across tif_print.c which has raised some further questions in my mind. What is this module part of in the distribution? Is the method of starting with the directory then parsing individual tags a "better" then individual tags and TIFFGetField? I have to admit this raised more questions in my mind then it answered.
Any tips are welcome,
