    Does anyone know anything about this Streaming TIFF (STIFF) format 
    that SGI is using?  Is this in the public domain somewhere or is it 
    homegrown at SGI?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    
STIFF is really just TIFF but w/ the data structures pre-placed so that
it can be fed through a pipe.  Note however that STIFF is (in my opinion)
a big kludge; it doesn't support compressed data and pseudo-violates the
spec in at least one area (the last IFD in each file is bogus).

I suspect that your real question was whether the implementation is
generally available.  If so the answer is no; it's part of the Impressario
printer product (to the best of my knowledge noone else inside SGI
use it; they all use my library).
