TIFFReadEncodedStrip(3TIFF)TIFFReadEncodedStrip(3TIFF)NAMETIFFReadEncodedStrip - read and decode a strip of data from an open
tsize_t TIFFReadEncodedStrip(TIFF *tif, tstrip_t strip, tdata_t buf,
Read the specified strip of data and place up to size bytes of decom‐
pressed information in the (user supplied) data buffer.
The value of strip is a ``raw strip number.'' That is, the caller must
take into account whether or not the data are organized in separate
planes (PlanarConfiguration=2). To read a full strip of data the data
buffer should typically be at least as large as the number returned by
TIFFStripSize(3TIFF). If the -1 passed in size parameter, the whole
strip will be read. You should be sure you have enough space allocated
for the buffer.
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 automati‐
cally byte-swapped if the file was written with a byte order opposite
to the native machine byte order,
The actual number of bytes of data that were placed in buf is returned;
TIFFReadEncodedStrip returns -1 if an error was encountered.
All error messages are directed to the TIFFError(3TIFF) routine.
