I've had a go at doing this. See attached for what it might look like.

I decided to add a configure option instead of doing the #define directly. The #define has no effect for tiffdump, since tiffdump is already a diagnostics tool and can support most of the MDI tags.

I've done a little bit of work on what will happen if the host is bigendian, however it is almost certainly incomplete. I will do some more work on this before submitting the patch again.

I'd also like to add something to the public API (eg another define or a function) that says whether libtiff was compiled with MDI support.

I'm still not sure this is the right approach - doing a more general solution (perhaps with some flags) and always having it on would avoid packaging / building problems.


I have created bug 1002 to address this issue:


I have committed your patch to CVS, but I would appreciate a sample file I can test with.

Your approach looks good.
