TIFFReadBufferSetup, TIFFWriteBufferSetup - I/O buffering control routines
int TIFFReadBufferSetup(TIFF*, tdata_t buffer, tsize_t size);
int TIFFWriteBufferSetup(TIFF*, tdata_t buffer, tsize_t size);
The following routines are provided for client-control of the I/O buffers used by the
library. Applications need never use these routines; they are provided only for ``intel-
ligent clients'' that wish to optimize memory usage and/or eliminate potential copy opera-
tions that can occur when working with images that have data stored without compression.
TIFFReadBufferSetup sets up the data buffer used to read raw (encoded) data from a file.
If the specified pointer is NULL (zero), then a buffer of the appropriate size is allo-
cated. Otherwise the caller must guarantee that the buffer is large enough to hold any
individual strip of raw data. TIFFReadBufferSetup returns a non-zero value if the setup
was successful and zero otherwise.
TIFFWriteBufferSetup sets up the data buffer used to write raw (encoded) data to a file.
If the specified size is -1 then the buffer size is selected to hold a complete tile or
strip, or at least 8 kilobytes, whichever is greater. If the specified buffer is NULL
(zero), then a buffer of the appropriate size is dynamically allocated. TIFFWriteBuffer-
Setup returns a non-zero value if the setup was successful and zero otherwise.
%s: No space for data buffer at scanline %ld. TIFFReadBufferSetup was unable to dynami-
cally allocate space for a data buffer.
%s: No space for output buffer. TIFFWriteBufferSetup was unable to dynamically allocate
space for a data buffer.
