NAME

TIFFWriteDirectory − write the current directory in an open TIFF file

SYNOPSIS

#include <tiffio.h>
int TIFFWriteDirectory(TIFF* tif)

DESCRIPTION

Write the contents of the current directory to the file and setup to create a new subfile in the same file. Applications only need to call TIFFWriteDirectory when writing multiple subfiles to a single TIFF file. TIFFWriteDirectory is automatically called by TIFFClose and TIFFFlush to write a modified directory if the file is open for writing.

RETURN VALUES

1 is returned when the contents are successfully written to the file. Otherwise, 0 is returned if an error was encountered when writing the directory contents.

DIAGNOSTICS
