Since version 2.0, I've used PRNTSCRN 2.0.0 which works even now
on Ferengi with the CSD (OS/2 for Windows 2.11). It makes great
bitmaps that you can color-map or dither. You can also convert
the image to a file in either Win BMP, OS/2 BMP, GIF, TIFF, and
some others I can't remember.
Recently it was either OS/2 Professional or OS/2 Magazine which
reviewed six screen capture utilities, and PRNTSCRN came out
on top with one reservation: no Postscript capabilities.
It costs about $100, the company is MITNOR Software in Broken Arrow, OK.
Usually, I could just go over and get more information on it except
that I'm in DOS now so I can use TCP/IP. If you want more information
from me, send me some return email at gwk -at- world -dot- std -dot- com
