       _TIFFmalloc, _TIFFrealloc, _TIFFfree, _TIFFmemset, _TIFFmemcpy, _TIFFmemcmp, - memory man-
       agement-related functions for use with TIFF files

       #include <tiffio.h>
       tdata_t _TIFFmalloc(tsize_t);
       tdata_t _TIFFrealloc(tdata_t, tsize_t);
       void _TIFFfree(tdata_t);
       void _TIFFmemset(tdata_t, int, tsize_t);
       void _TIFFmemcpy(tdata_t, const tdata_t, tsize_t);
       int _TIFFmemcmp(const tdata_t, const tdata_t, tsize_t);

       These routines are provided for writing portable software that uses libtiff; they hide any
       memory-management  related  issues,  such as dealing with segmented architectures found on
       16-bit machines.

       _TIFFmalloc and _TIFFrealloc are used to dynamically allocate and reallocate  memory  used
       by  libtiff;  such as memory passed into the I/O routines.  Memory allocated through these
       interfaces is released back to the system using the _TIFFfree routine.

       Memory allocated through one of the above interfaces can be set to  a  known  value  using
       _TIFFmemset, copied to another memory location using _TIFFmemcpy, or compared for equality
       using _TIFFmemcmp.  These routines conform to the equivalent ANSI C routines: memset, mem-
       cpy, and memcmp, repsectively.
