screenshot-1.0: description + notes

screenshot is an X11 application to create image dumps of selected windows or widgets.

screenshot was written by Yusuf Attarwala of SGI to replace snapshot, an old application written in IrisGL. Dave Ratcliffe, Mike Gold, and Dave Bouvier helped Yusuf rewrite screenshot in Motif and add a few useful features such as:

The code uses /usr/sbin/scrsave to actually grab the region image. Overlay windows are used for the GUI, including the region rubberband, to avoid causing expose/redraw artifacts in the underlying windows.

screenshot doesn't have a man page, it has an online help option and its GUI is self descriptive and simple to use.

To auto-install this package, go back and click on the respective install icon.
