1998.07.30 04:51 "Libtiff and Byte Order", by Marcos H. Woehrmann

Hi,

Is it easy/difficult/impossible to get libtiff to write TIFF files in a non-native byte order?

According to the libtiff v3.4beta018 documentation:

  (data is written in the native
  order of the host CPU unless appending to an existing file, in
  which case it is written in the byte order specified in the file).

It seems to me the ability to adapt to the byte order in an existing file suggests that writing a specific byte order should be possible.
