• ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of library TIFF 4.2.0 uploaded.

    From [via djgpp-announce@delorie.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Thu Feb 25 17:54:32 2021
    This is a port of library TIFF 4.2.0 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_4.1.0+git191117-2.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
    ftp.delorie.com and mirrors as:

    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 OS.

    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 "_build" 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 /share/doc/libtiff.420/html

    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 ftp.delorie.com
    and mirrors as (time stamp 2021-02-12):
