Where can I find a library for writing compressed TIF or Photoshop RAW files?

I have an algorithm that generates an image by drawing straight lines and I want to write the image directly to disk as a compressed TIF (LZW or ZIP). Is there a programming language/library combination in which I can do this in a straightforward way? My preference is for a Windows/Visual Basic solution but I can use Python and Perl on Windows and Linux, or even C on either platform.

A library with that writes a Photoshop RAW (not camera RAW) file will do, but I have a very strong preference for compressed TIFs.

Thanks Sunnycoder, that definitely looks like a way forward and is worth some points. I will keep this open for a few days to see if I can get a Windows/non-C solution.

Hi,
Professional, not free libraries for VB and OCX:

 You can also use GDI+ functions if you have VB .NET:

I ran out of time to test either of these solutions.
