Salve populi,

I need a way to capture a graphical display from the video screen running in
DOS, and save it as a manipulable file such as *.bmp, *.pcx, or even *.eps.

My usual work environment is OS/2, but the application in question will only
run in a DOS full screen session.

I'd appreciate any information leading to the arrest and conviction of:

1) A screen capture program that runs in DOS.

b) A way to make PRINT SCREEN print to a file.

Extra points for creativity awarded for not ending your reply with
"Hope this helps."
