Screen grabs in HP UX 10.2

I want to perform screen grabs so I can capture the screen graphically and convert it to a bitmap to be used elsewhere. Essentially the same as using screen grabs in windows (i.e. shift+Alt+PrintScreen) and then paste it into mspaint. Thanks

To grab the whole screen use:
$ xwd -root -out capturedscreen.xwd

If you need some time to setup the screen use:
$ sleep 10; xwd -root -out capturedscreen.xwd

To display the file, use:
$ xwud -in xwd capturedscreen.xwd

There are several utilities which will convert xwd-files into other formats (check pbm-utilities). If you want a nice screen-grabber get 'xgrabsc'

Hope this helps

use xv or snapshot. xv can be downloaded from internet and
snapshot should be included with x utils on hp-ux.
