Manual Reference Pages - TIFFREADTILE (3)
TIFFReadTile - read and decode a tile of data from an open
tsize_t TIFFReadTile(TIFF *tif, tdata_t buf, uint32 x, uint32 y, uint32 z, tsample_t sample)
Return the data for the tile
containing the specified coordinates. The data placed in
buf are returned decompressed and, typically, in the native byte- and
bit-ordering, but are otherwise packed (see further below). The buffer must be
large enough to hold an entire tile of data. Applications should call the
TIFFTileSize to find out the size (in bytes) of a tile buffer. The
y parameters are always used by
z parameter is used if the image is deeper than 1 slice (
sample parameter is used only if data are organized in separate planes (
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
automatically byte-swapped if the file was written with a byte order opposite
to the native machine byte order,
TIFFReadTile returns -1 if it detects an error; otherwise the number of bytes in the
decoded tile is returned.
