The contrib directory has contributed software that uses the TIFF library or which is associated with the library (typically glue and guidance for ports to non-UNIX platforms).
|contrib/vms||scripts and files from Karsten Spang for building the library and tools under VMS|
|contrib/dbs||a simple X-based TIFF viewer from Dan & Chris Sears|
|contrib/ras||two programs by Patrick Naughton for converting between Sun rasterfile format and TIFF (these require libpixrect.a, as opposed to the one in tools that doesn't)|
|contrib/mac-mpw||scripts and files from Niles Ritter for building the library and tools under Macintosh/MPW C.|
|contrib/acorn||scripts and files from Peter Greenham for building the library and tools on an Acorn RISC OS system.|
|contrib/win32||scripts and files from Scott Wagner for building the library under Windows NT and Windows 95.|
|contrib/tags||scripts and files from Niles Ritter for adding private tag support at runtime, without changing libtiff.|
Don't send me mail asking about this stuff; I frequently know absolutely nothing about it. Send questions and/or bug reports directly to the authors.
