Looks nice! I got it to compile on Linux, now to figure out how to use it...
For those on Linux attempting the same, there may be an extra step you need to do:
In the "how_to_build_linux.md" file, there is a step for compiling the custom tiff library; "Building the tiff library from thirdparty". Add the change below (in blue) to compile it with 'jbig' disabled:
CFLAGS="-fPIC" ./configure --disable-jbig && make
Well, try the 'official' step first, and if it craps out with "undefined reference" errors, try that.
