• ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of library TIFF 4.5.0 uploaded.

    From [via djgpp-announce@delorie.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Fri Dec 30 00:45:49 2022
    This is a port of library TIFF 4.5.0 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_4.5.0-1.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:
    Of course, you can download any newer version of these libraries
    if available.

    The port has been configured and compiled on WinXP SP3, Win98SE and
    MSDOS 6.22 with DOSLFN v0.41f. There is no guarantee that this may
    be possible with any other DOS-like OS. Due to the use of long file
    names it will not be possible to configure and compile without LFN
    support. The port has been compiled using bnu2351b, gcc346 and

    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 /share/doc/libtiff.450/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
    djdev20X (CVS repository code) and can be downloaded from ftp.delorie.com
    and mirrors as (time stamp 2022-12-28):
