       TIFFSetField, TIFFVSetField - set the value(s) of a tag in a TIFF file open for writing


       #include <tiffio.h>

       int TIFFSetField(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, ...)

       #include <stdarg.h>

       int TIFFVSetField(TIFF *tif, ttag_t tag, va_list ap)


       TIFFSetField  sets  the value of a field or pseudo-tag in the current directory associated
       with the open TIFF file tif.  (A pseudo-tag is a parameter that is  used  to  control  the
       operation  of  the  TIFF  library but whose value is not read or written to the underlying
       file.)  To set the value of a field the file must have been previously opened for  writing
       with  TIFFOpen(3TIFF);  pseudo-tags  can be set whether the file was opened for reading or
       writing.  The field is identified by tag, one of the values defined in  the  include  file
       tiff.h  (see  also  the  table  below).   The  actual  value is specified using a variable
       argument list, as prescribed by  the  stdarg(3)  interface  (or,  on  some  machines,  the
       varargs(3) interface.)

       TIFFVSetField is functionally equivalent to TIFFSetField except that it takes a pointer to
       a variable argument list.  TIFFVSetField is useful for writing routines that  are  layered
       on top of the functionality provided by TIFFSetField.

       The tags understood by libtiff, the number of parameter values, and the expected types for
       the parameter values are shown below.  The data types are: char* is null-terminated string
       and  corresponds  to the ASCII data type; uint16 is an unsigned 16-bit value; uint32 is an
       unsigned 32-bit value; uint16* is an array of unsigned 16-bit values.  void* is  an  array
       of data values of unspecified type.

       Consult the TIFF specification for information on the meaning of each tag.

       All error messages are directed to the TIFFError(3TIFF) routine.

       %s:  Cannot  modify tag "%s" while writing.  Data has already been written to the file, so
       the specified tag's value can not be changed.  This restriction is  applied  to  all  tags
       that affect the format of written data.

       %d: Bad value for "%s".  An invalid value was supplied for the named tag.
