MAS::TIFF is a pure Perl package for reading TIFF image metadata and samples. It allows the user to read pixel (sample) data without needing libtiff.
Release Notes: This release disables upper-left region pixel dumping when dumping IFDs, shows the raw bytes for the offset when dumping, fixes a bug related to offsets being four bytes long (not two), and only attempts to print software and datetime if they are defined.
Release Notes: This is the first freecode release. Some basic metadata reading and reading pixels of bitonal LZW compressed strips is working, but the API isn't particularly well thought out yet.
