Subject:Bitmap screendump program for DOS From:PIP Mailbox <prc -at- PIP -dot- DKNET -dot- DK> Date:Thu, 8 Feb 1996 17:49:46 +0000
Some time ago somebody looked for a program to make bitmap
screendumps from DOS. I knew I had seen one, but couldn't find it
then, and as well as I know, nobody found any solution.
Now I have found it: It is a cheap sharewareprogramme ($8 range) with
a TSR taking up 0-15k below 640k, depending on your computer
The program is called PCXDUMP and works with or without Windows and
with DOS > 3.1. If the following info don't work, try the programmer:
