1. Purpose




2. Copying

snapscreenshot has been written by Joel Yliluoma, a.k.a. Bisqwit,
and is distributed under the terms of the General Public License (GPL).

If you happen to see this program useful for you, I'd appreciate if you tell me :) Perhaps it would motivate me to enhance the program.

3. FAQ

Q: I have 132x50 text mode with 8x8 font, and when I take a snapshot, it looks very wide and not tall... Why does snapscreenshot mess the ratio?
A: snapscreenshot doesn't save or even know about dot-per-inch ratios, and neither do most image display programs.
132x50 with 8x8 font means 1054x400 pixel resolution, and you clearly can see that 1054 is over two times 400.
So it really is wider than its tall. Your monitor just squashes the pixels horizontally.
If you want a regular 1.25 ratio image, you have to either squeeze it horizontally or stretch it vertically by using an image conversion program like Imagemagick.

4. Requirements

GNU make is probably required.
The program only works in Linux (I don't know any other unix clones having /dev/vcs* -devices).
