As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    2 Wrapping the tiff support library for tcl is a bit more complicated
    3 than libz, or libpng.

    5 (1)	libtiff comes with its own configure command, and there is no
    6 	configure.in. This means that it is not possible to lift the
    7 	relevant sections out of it for the configure of the
    8 	binding.
    9 
   10 	Also this configure is not exactly autoconf based (Seems so).
   11 	One of the things it has to be told is the target/build architecture,
   12 	as argument instead of via option. Because of this we cannot use
   13 	AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS to run the sub-configure.
   14 
   15 	We do it directly, and are thus also able to avoid the symlink
   16 	we had to have in libjpeg/tcl.
   17 
   18 (2)	The tif sources have usage of tdarg.h hardwired into them.
   19 	This means that a compiler not using this header, but varargs.h
   20 	cannot be used. This is checked in configure.
