Is it possible to use the libTiff library to read and write 32 bit (float) format Tiff files? I mean 32 bits per channel (not total).
If so, does anyone have a simple example of how to do this including manipulation of the individual pixel data once read into a buffer.

The complete documentation is here:
I've not used the libtrary, and it seems to be aging a bit (last update 2003) but it seems pretty comprehensive.

Thanks, but I have seen the manual for using libTiff but it doesn't seem to cover 32 bit Tiffs, unless I am missing that. I could really do with an example since I am in a hurry...
