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.

  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.
