Thanks for pointing out the mistakes.

So after checking, the vast majority of this patch is copy & pasted

Yes, I have based major functions like unpack14 and unpack3 on Code from
OpenEXR.Since this is the first time working on Open Source Software (even
last time i worked i couldn't finish the task) i have taken code from other
sources. I got to know about the OpenExr from the Copyrights of exr.c file.
This is not the final patch. I would definitely work on the functions and
modify them accordingly.
