TIFFGetField(3TIFF)					   TIFFGetField(3TIFF)

       TIFFGetField, TIFFVGetField - get the value(s) of a tag in an open TIFF

       #include <tiffio.h>

       int TIFFGetField(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, ...)

       #include <stdarg.h>

       int TIFFVGetField(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, va_list ap)
       int TIFFGetFieldDefaulted(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, ...)
       int TIFFVGetFieldDefaulted(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, va_list ap)

       TIFFGetField returns the value of a tag or pseudo-tag  associated  with
       the  the	 current directory of the opened TIFF file tif.	 (A pseudo-tag
       is a parameter that is used  to	control	 the  operation	 of  the  TIFF
       library but whose value is not read or written to the underlying file.)
       The file must have been previously opened  with	TIFFOpen(3TIFF).   The
       tag is identified by tag, one of the values defined in the include file
       tiff.h (see also the table  below).  The	 type  and  number  of	values
       returned	 is  dependent	on  the	 tag  being requested. The programming
       interface uses a variable argument list as prescribed by the  stdarg(3)
       interface.  The	returned values should only be interpreted if TIFFGet‐
       Field returns 1.

       TIFFVGetField is functionally equivalent to TIFFGetField except that it
       takes  a	 pointer to a variable argument list.  TIFFVGetField is useful
       for layering  interfaces	 on  top  of  the  functionality  provided  by

       TIFFGetFieldDefaulted   and  TIFFVGetFieldDefaulted  are	 identical  to
       TIFFGetField and TIFFVGetField, except that if a tag is not defined  in
       the  current  directory	and  it	 has a default value, then the default
       value is returned.

       The tags understood by libtiff(3TIFF), the number of parameter  values,
       and  the	 types for the returned values are shown below. The data types
       are specified as in C and correspond to the types used to  specify  tag
       values  to  TIFFSetField(3TIFF).	  Remember  that  TIFFGetField returns
       parameter values, so all the listed data types are pointers to  storage
       where  values  should  be returned.  Consult the TIFF specification (or
       relevant industry specification) for information on the meaning of each
       tag and their possible values.

       If you can't find the tag in the table above that means this is	unsup‐
       ported  tag.  But  you still be able to read it's value if you know the
       data type of that tag. For example, if you want to read the LONG	 value
       from  the tag 33424 and ASCII string from the tag 36867 you can use the
       following code:

	      uint16  count;
	      void    *data;

	      TIFFGetField(tiff, 33424, &count, &data);
	      printf("Tag %d: %d, count %d0, 33424, *(uint32 *)data, count);
	      TIFFGetField(tiff, 36867, &count, &data);
	      printf("Tag %d: %s, count %d0, 36867, (char *)data, count);

       is not supported by libtiff(3TIFF), library

       1 is returned if the tag is defined in the current directory; otherwise
       a 0 is returned.

       All error messages are directed to the TIFFError(3TIFF) routine.

       Unknown field, tag 0x%x.	 An unknown tag was supplied.
