For people wanting to create tiff files from C or C++, I've installed
the libtiff library on the public linux machines. The documentation
can be accessed via "man libtiff" (be sure that your MANPATH contains
/p/man). There is html documentation in /p/src/tiff-v3.6.1/html as well.
The libraries are installed in /p/lib and the tools are installed in /p/bin
Let me know if you have any trouble using this library.
