VRf - RE Screen Dumps

In Windows 3.1 the PrintScreen key will copy the screen image
to the windows clipboard.  Alt-PrtSc will copy the current  _window_.
I think there is a Windows95 equivalent keystroke, too.

Then you can paste the clipboard into Paintbrush or any other
graphics program to save or edit the image.

The above is a manual process.  I don't know how you could do
it within a VEE program.

Hello HP-Vee-ers,
     Is there a good way to do screen dumps other than to do "print screen"? 
I am currently using print screen and Window's Poscript printer driver.  My
output is thus a postscript file.  This is fine for printing, but I have
dificulty using this file in graphic editors.  Also, the colors in the
postscript output are not as bright compared to the image on the monitor.  Is
there a way to get a PCX/GIF/BMP/etc output directly?  Thanks in advance.
