  I am running INFORMIX 4.11 RDS on SCO UNIX 3.2.4 and would
like to incorperate screen shots into my documentation.

  Does anyone know how this can be done, so I can import the
screen shots into a Word for Windows document.

  Thanks in advance Steve....

P.S. Thanks to all the people who relied to my keeping track of
windows query last week.

try setting the DBSCREENOUT environment variable to a file name before
running the program you want to capture the screens from. then, press
control-P while running the program. this should write the screen out
to the file named by DBSCREENOUT.

        We've found the easiest way to capture screens is to dial into
to our computer with Procomm or Crosstalk and use the session logging
or the the Cosstalk Pic command.  Procomm is easier to use, but the
Crosstalk Pic command produces the best results.

You can output screens to a file by setting an environment
variable called DBSCREENOUT to a file name (I use "screen.out")

set DBSCREENOUT screen.out

The run your application program and press <CTRL>P. The current
screen will be appended to "screen.out".

You'll still have to do some messing around, splitting "screen.out"
into individual screens, but it's the only method I know of.

1. Help: MS-DOS Screen Capture (in Full-Screen Mode) Under Win 95/98/NT

Hi!  I need to implement a program that can capture an MS-DOS screen, in
full-screen mode, under Win 95/98/NT.  I spent the last day trying to find a
good answer to this, but so far, I have come up with nothing.  I know that I
could, in theory, implement a cheesy "SendKeys" solution and/or snag the
image via the clipboard, but I am looking for a much more elegant solution.
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.....

BTW, I would appreciate it if you could respond to this message via e-mail,

do the news groups.  Thanks!
