Clip is an OS/2 Presentation Manager program that you can use to
capture (or "clip") all or selected portions of the PM screen to the
Clip is also a clipboard bitmap viewer. Bitmaps placed in the system
clipboard by other programs are visible in Clip's client window.
Clip is unique in that it doesn't rely on timers to capture
full-screen images. Clip installs a system-wide keyboard queue hook
and pressing PrintScrn will ALWAYS capture the screen contents, even
if you're in a menu, or in a modal dialog box, or sizing a window, etc.
The image you clip is then pasted in the clipboard as a GPI bitmap.
You can save the bitmap to disk in either PM bitmap, GPI metafile,
ZSoft PC Paintbrush, Microsoft Paint, Aldus TIFF, or PostScript
format. Compression monochrome/grayscale/color are all supported.
Clip's reference manual is on-line and context-sensitive.
There's lots of other good stuff too. Give it a roll.

Clip was written by Denis Gilbert, a principal of Dynalink Technologies
