TIFFReadEncodedTile - read and decode a tile of data from an open TIFF
int TIFFReadEncodedTile(TIFF *tif, u_long tile, u_char *buf, u_long
Read the specified tile of data and place up to size bytes of decom-
pressed information in the (user supplied) data buffer.
The value of tile is a ``raw tile number.'' That is, the caller must
take into account whether or not the data are organized in separate
planes (PlanarConfiguration=2). TIFFComputeTile automatically does
this when converting an (x,y,z,sample) coordinate quadruple to a tile
number. To read a full tile of data the data buffer should be at least
as large as the value returned by TIFFTileSize.
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 automati-
cally byte-swapped if the file was written with a byte order opposite
to the native machine byte order,
The actual number of bytes of data that were placed in buf is returned;
TIFFReadEncodedTile returns -1 if an error was encountered.
All error messages are directed to the TIFFError(3TIFF) routine.
