Tools and library routines for working with TIFF images
This software provides support for the Tag Image File Format TIFF, a widely used format for storing image data.
Included in this software distribution is a library, libtiff, for reading and writing TIFF, a small collection of tools for doing simple manipulations of TIFF images on UNIX systems, and documentation on the library and tools. A small assortment of TIFF-related software for UNIX that has been contributed by others is also included.
The library is capable of dealing with images that are written to follow the 5.0 or 6.0 TIFF spec. There is also considerable support for some of the more esoteric portions of the 6.0 TIFF spec.
Unless WITHOUT=DOCS, the html documentations is also installed locally in /usr/local/share/doc/tiff.
