int TIFFReadEncodedTile(TIFF *tif, ttile_t tile, tdata_t buf, tsize_t size)¶
Read the specified tile of data and place up to size bytes of decompressed information in the (user supplied) data buffer.
The value of tile is a "raw tile number". That is, the caller must take
into account whether or not the data are organized in separate planes
PlanarConfiguration = 2).
TIFFComputeTile() automatically does this when converting an
(x,y,z,sample) coordinate quadruple to a tile number. To read a full tile
of data the data buffer should be at least as large as the value returned by
The library attempts to hide bit- and byte-ordering differences between the
image and the native machine by converting data to the native machine order.
Bit reversal is done if the
FillOrder tag is opposite to the native
machine bit order. 16- and 32-bit samples are automatically byte-swapped if
the file was written with a byte order opposite to the native machine byte
The actual number of bytes of data that were placed in buf is returned;
TIFFReadEncodedTile() returns -1 if an error was encountered.
