I managed to use OpenSlide to read LEICA's .scn files, which are tiled
BigTIFF files with JPEG compression. To achieve this, I compiled
OpenSlide using the latest libtiff, which supports BigTIFF and also I
had to do some modifications in openslide-vendor-generic-tiff.c. This
was required because of the way layers are arranged in SCN files.
So my question is, should I add a new handler for LEICA files to the
project (so that no changes in generic tiff are required)? This would
require modifications in openslide.c as well, to add the appropriate
function pointers in tiff_formats. Could this addition be incorporated
in OpenSlide's code repository somehow?
