$Header$ TIFF Software Distribution -------------------------- This file is just a placeholder; all the documentation is now in HTML in the html directory. To view the documentation point your favorite WWW viewer at html/index.html; e.g. firefox html/index.html If you don't have an HTML viewer then you can read the HTML source or fetch a PostScript version of this documentation from the directory ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/ If you can't hack either of these options then basically what you want to do is: % ./configure % make % su # make install More information, email contacts, and mailing list information can be found online at http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/.
