I found myself fatally allergic to Hijaack. I have used HOTSHOT for DOS
screen captures, and found it acceptable. It has some cute features --
automatically increments file names, does bulk conversions from its
text-based format to a (small) variety of bitmap formats, automatically
adds nice round-cornered borders if you want, and has a truly awful
bitmap editor.

Are you working in Windows or strictly in DOS? If you're doing Windows,
I recommend LVIEW as a screen grabber -- you can snip just the 'client'
portion of a window, including DOS windows, and save them immediately in
your choice of formats: BMP, JPG, TIF, PCX, ad infinitum.

You can get LVIEW by FTP or WWW from just about anywhere. For Hotshot,
call Symsoft at 702-832-4300. That's their tech support number, they may
have an 800 number too, try directory assistance for that.
