We have used libtiff to create and convert TIFF images of financial documents which are sent from and to major document processing systems in Sweden and Denmark. I would like to express my deep gratitude to yourself and Sillicon Graphics for making this excellent library available for public use. There is obviously a lot of work that has gone in to libtiff and the quality of the code and documentation is an example to others. One thing that libtiff did not do was work on a memory area rather than files. In my applications I had already read a TIFF or other format file in to memory and did not want to waste I/O writing it out again for libtiff's benefit. I therefore constructed a set of functions to pass up to TIFFClientOpen to simulate a file in memory. I have attached my mfs (memory file system) source code for you to use or junk, as you see fit. :-) Once again, thanks very much for making my life simpler. Best Regards, Mike Johnson.
