What is it for?

This is the image format BEAM-ish writes graphical information too.

Who generates it?




How is it formatted?

The Tagged Image File Format is common and can be read by most image editing software.  A detailed description of the format can be found at http://www.libtiff.org/. Beamish requires the system to have the libtiff.so file installed.  This is usually already on an SGI system.
