-tiff with enabled old-jpeg support. Do not forgive recompile jpeg with patch
-(jdhuff_add.c) from tiff.
-I though this helps me to read M$ tiff files, but I was wrong. Even after
-patching I receive the following error:
-unknown field with tag 37679 (0x932f) encountered. `TIFFReadDirectory'.
-unknown field with tag 37680 (0x9330) encountered. `TIFFReadDirectory'.
-unknown field with tag 37681 (0x9331) encountered. `TIFFReadDirectory'.
-Well. Just found some other information, that may be of interest for somebody
-reading this README file.
-From Ubuntu Bugzilla:

-My brother emails me tiffs of magazine articles from work generated by the
-scanning system they have in place there. They always have this problem. He's
-not very tech-savvy, so he may not be able to configure the system to generate
-Anyway, I've gone through the trouble of compiling libtiff with the "old jpeg"
-support after patching and recompiling libjpeg. After doing this, I still can't
-view the file:
-burner@firefighter:/tmp$ /tmp/jpg/bin/tiffinfo ~/Desktop/WELL\ LET\ ME.tif
-TIFFReadDirectory: Warning, /home/burner/Desktop/WELL LET ME.tif: unknown field with tag 37679 (0x932f) encountered.

-/home/burner/Desktop/WELL LET ME.tif: Invalid YCbCr subsampling.
-TIFFReadDirectory: /home/burner/Desktop/WELL LET ME.tif: cannot handle zero strip size.
-As you can see, the last 3 unknown fields are present, but I've managed to get
-libtiff to understand the takes 513 and 514. Sadly, I still can't get the data
-I've collected information on this from the following links (for those that may
-find this bug report in the future):
-I've gone so far as to run Windows' own tiff viewer, and that still couldn't
-extract the image data.
-End result: if you get your hands on one of these "old style jpeg in tiff"
-files, you're pretty much out of luck. You'll have to negotiate with the file
-supplier to provide it in a different format.

-OK, maybe you won't be out of luck. After reading Pete Savage's blog post about
-recovering data, I was able to extract the jpeg living inside my tiff and
-finally view the image as intended. Others may find the "foremost" program
-foremost was able to discover 2 jpegs (one thumbnail as well as the original
-scan) and an OLE document inside the evil TIFF, and it extracted them into
-their own files. Just run it like so: "foremost evil.tiff" and it'll put all
-the files it finds underneath and "output" directory.
