Sorry, there is a misunderstanding here. I should have clearer. For
instance, when reading a jpeg you set a mark with setjmp() see
read.hpp[49] in the jpeg folder. Just before that I set the error
handler "error_exit()" which will be called in case of an error. It's
only here that longjmp will be called. Though, you are correct in your
assumption that longjmp is only called when there is an error.

Hope you find some time to review my work.
