This is a port of library TIFF 4.3.0 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

DJGPP specific changes.

SIGINT and SIGQUIT will be reenabled if stdin and/or stdout are
switched to binary mode while they are connected to the console.
This is the only DJGPP specific change to the sources I have done.
Apart from this, only the usual configuration files have been added,
especialy sed scripts to fix the libtool files and they are located
in the "djgpp" directory together with the diffs.

Apart from the DJGPP specific changes also all debian specific
patches have been applied. These are all patches from
tiff_4.3.0-6.debian.tar.xz available at:

To configure and compile the package and later to use it, you will
have to install the zlib, xz, jpeg, jbig and the png port available at and mirrors as:
Of course, you can download any newer version of these libraries
if available.

To compile the source code LFN support is required. I have build it
on WinXP and Win98SE but I have never tried to build it on any other

As usual, all djgpp specific files (diffs, README files, etc.) are
stored in the "djgpp" directory. The sources have been configured to
be build in the "0build" directory. If for some reason it does not
work for you, delete its contents and configure from scratch again
running the command: ..\djgpp\config.bat ../.

Please read the docs. There are no info formated docs. All the
extensive documentation is html formated and placed in

For further information about library TIFF please read the docs and
NEWS file.

The port consists of the usual two packages that have been produced
using djdev205 (CVS repository code) and can be downloaded from and mirrors as (time stamp 2022-04-27):
