Thank you to the six people who responded so quickly to my query. (My
apologies for the lag in posting the summary.) Note that under PRNTSCRN
there is a reference to a trade magazine software review. I haven't found
the issue in our corporate library, but perhaps it will be useful to
someone else out there in TECHWR-Land.

PM Camera /2
Supports OS/2 BMP, OS/2 clipboard, PSEG38PP, and Postscript formats. It
can capture whole screen, one window, or selected portion of
screen/window. No information about how well it works with WinWord or
WordPerfect. To obtain, try contacting an IBM retailer, rep, or 1-800
number. (Yes, it available outside of IBM.)

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.
