       TIFFWriteScanline - write a scanline to an open TIFF file

       #include <tiffio.h>

       int  TIFFWriteScanline(TIFF  *tif,  tdata_t  buf, uint32 row, tsample_t

       Write data to a file at the specified row. The sample parameter is used
       only  if data are organized in separate planes (PlanarConfiguration=2).
       The data are assumed to be uncompressed and  in	the  native  bit-  and
       byte-order  of  the  host machine. The data written to the file is com‐
       pressed according to the compression scheme of the current TIFF	direc‐
       tory  (see  further  below). If the current scanline is past the end of
       the current subfile, the ImageLength field is  automatically  increased
       to  include  the	 scanline (except for PlanarConfiguration=2, where the
       ImageLength cannot be changed once the first data are written). If  the
       ImageLength  is	increased, the StripOffsets and StripByteCounts fields
       are similarly enlarged to reflect data written past the previous end of

       The  library  writes  encoded data using the native machine byte order.
       Correctly implemented TIFF readers are expected	to  do	any  necessary
       byte-swapping  to  correctly  process  image  data  with	 BitsPerSample
       greater than 8. The library attempts to hide  bit-ordering  differences
       between	the  image  and the native machine by converting data from the
       native machine order.

       In C++ the sample parameter defaults to 0.

       Once data are written to a file for the current directory,  the	values
       of  certain  tags  may not be altered; see TIFFSetField(3TIFF) for more

       It is not possible to write scanlines to a file that uses a tiled orga‐
       nization.  The routine TIFFIsTiled can be used to determine if the file
       is organized as tiles or strips.

       TIFFWriteScanline returns -1 if it immediately detects an error	and  1
       for a successful write.

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

       %s:  File  not open for writing .  The file was opened for reading, not

       Can not write scanlines to a tiled image.  An attempt was made to write
       a  scanline  to	a tiled image. The image is assumed to be organized in
       tiles because the TileWidth and TileLength  tags	 have  been  set  with

       Compression algorithm does not support random access.  Data was written
       in a non-sequential order to a file that uses a	compression  algorithm
       and  that has RowsPerStrip greater than one. That is, data in the image
       is to be stored in a compressed form, and  with	multiple  rows	packed
       into  a strip. In this case, the library does not support random access
       to the data. The data  should  either  be  written  as  entire  strips,
       sequentially  by	 rows,	or  the value of RowsPerStrip should be set to

       %s: Must set "ImageWidth" before writing data.  The image's  width  has
       not  be set before the first write.  See TIFFSetField(3TIFF) for infor‐
       mation on how to do this.

       %s: Must set "PlanarConfiguration" before writing data.	The  organiza‐
       tion  of	 data has not be defined before the first write.  See TIFFSet‐
       Field(3TIFF) for information on how to do this.

       Can not change "ImageLength" when using separate planes. Separate image
       planes  are  being used (PlanarConfiguration=2), but the number of rows
       has not been specified before the first write. The library supports the
       dynamic growth of an image only when data are organized in a contiguous
       manner (PlanarConfiguration=1).

       %d: Sample out of range, max %d.	 The sample parameter was greater than
       the value of the SamplesPerPixel tag.

       %s:  No	space  for  strip arrays .  There was not enough space for the
       arrays that hold strip offsets and byte counts.

       Writing subsampled YCbCR data does not work correctly because, for Pla‐
       narConfiguration=2  the	size of a scanline is not calculated on a per-
       sample basis, and for PlanarConfiguration=1 the library does  not  pack
       the block-interleaved samples.
