TIFFWriteTile - encode and write a tile of data to an open TIFF file
tsize_t TIFFWriteTile(TIFF *tif, tdata_t buf, uint32 x, uint32 y,
uint32 z, tsample_t sample)
Write the data for the tile containing the specified coordinates. The
data in buf are is (potentially) compressed, and written to the indi-
cated file, normally being appended to the end of the file. The buffer
must be contain an entire tile of data. Applications should call the
routine TIFFTileSize to find out the size (in bytes) of a tile buffer.
The x and y parameters are always used by TIFFWriteTile. The z parame-
ter is used if the image is deeper than 1 slice (ImageDepth>1). The
sample parameter is used only if data are organized in separate planes
TIFFWriteTile returns -1 if it detects an error; otherwise the number
of bytes in the tile is returned.
All error messages are directed to the TIFFError(3TIFF) routine.
