Hi,

I am working on a IBM AIX Unix box and I'm trying to install TIFF because another library (GLib & gtk) require TIFF.

I found the website that has many download files but I'm not sure which ones I should use. I use gzip so I know the ending of the file should be "...tar.gz" (ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/ )

Do I use any of the following files:

tiff-v3.6.1.tar.gz

libtiff-lzw-compression-kit-1.5.tar.gz

v3.4pics.tar.gz

What is the purpose of the comopression-kit and do I really need it to run
tiff?
Also is the command "tiff" or "tiffgt"?
