Hello, I am trying to compile the LIBTIFF library (version 3.2) on an MSDOS machine using BCC 4.02. I have noticed that many parts of the LIBTIFF code use short meaning a TWO byte signed integer, whereas BCC 4.02 defines short as a signed ONE-byte integer (and seems disinclined to let me change it). If anyone has already solved this problem (and there is a more elegant solution than ripping through the code changing short for int or likewise defined type) I'd love to hear it. I have also noticed the correspondance on this list referring to v3.3 (still in beta form?). Perhaps this version has already corrected the 1-2 byte short problem. Many thanks in advance for any help you can give. Raymond. -- Raymond Wilson, Software Engineer. Morgan Collis Group Ltd, The Mill, Millbrook Close, Yes, they ARE fond of mills here!
