Excellent! :-)

How do I file

  1. a request to get this into the documentation

The documentation is in the CVS repository; see second answer for more details. I do notice that the comma funcionality is not explained very much in 'libtiff/man/tiffcp.1.html', and in particular, no mention is made of the trailing-comma-for-all-remaining-images usage, so that could be a nice addition also.

  1. an enhancement when I have understood the code, so that we might

actually be able to write


Start here http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/internals.html to get familiar with types, conventions, etc.

You'll need a CVS-compatible client (on W, try WinCVS or TortoiseCVS) to copy the source code to your local machine ("check out"), add the functionality, test it thoroughly, and submit to the repository ("check in" AKA "commit"). To commit, you'll need a login; to get one, maybe contact Joris, Frank, Andrey, or Mike. For your first change, you might just want to post your diff/patch to the list (if it's not too large), or send a copy to whomever is admin-ing the CVS.

The checkout instructions are listed in on the main page ( http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/ ) under "Anonymous CVS".

Thanks again for the quick and complete solution!

Always a pleasure.
