I was looking for tools or developer tool kit for converting TIFF files to text files. I would like for both UNIX and Windows platform. I would appreciate if any of you can provide me with information on this regard.
Strange thoughts go through my head.
% tiff2txt beach.tif > beach.txt
% more beach.txt
A long streach of beach near dusk.
A boat, it sails taught with wind, can be seen passing.
The beach curves out to sea, ending in a rocky islet with a lighthouse.
Fog partially obscures the lighthouse, but one can still see a figure silhouetted by the lamp.
A solitary figure with no shoes sits in the sand...strangely, facing away from the ocean.
