TIFFFindCODEC, TIFFRegisterCODEC, TIFFUnRegisterCODEC - codec-related utility routines
const TIFFCodec* TIFFFindCODEC(uint16 scheme);
TIFFCodec* TIFFRegisterCODEC(uint16 scheme, const char* method, TIFFInitMethod init);
void TIFFUnRegisterCODEC(TIFFCodec* codec);
libtiff supports a variety of compression schemes implemented by software codecs. Each
codec adheres to a modular interface that provides for the decoding and encoding of image
data; as well as some other methods for initialization, setup, cleanup, and the control of
default strip and tile sizes. Codecs are identified by the associated value of the TIFF
Compression tag; e.g. 5 for LZW compression.
The TIFFRegisterCODEC routine can be used to augment or override the set of codecs avail-
able to an application. If the specified scheme already has a registered codec then it is
overridden and any images with data encoded with this compression scheme will be decoded
using the supplied coded.
No space to register compression scheme %s. TIFFRegisterCODEC was unable to allocate mem-
ory for the data structures needed to register a codec.
Cannot remove compression scheme %s; not registered. TIFFUnRegisterCODEC did not locate
the specified codec in the table of registered compression schemes.
