MAS::TIFF - Pure Perl TIFF image metadata and samples reading
MAS stands for Metadata And Samples.
MAS::TIFF is a pure Perl package for reading TIFF image metadata and samples.
The other TIFF reading libraries I could find on CPAN either used
libtiff or were just about metadata. I needed a library that would allow me to read pixel (sample) data, without needing libtiff.
As of 2012-04-17, some basic metadata reading and reading pixels of bitonal LZW compressed strips is working, but the API isn't particularly well thought out yet.
