This is one method I know of:-
There is a program called 'snapshot' in Si graphics
(usually in /usr/sbin) that captures any portion of
the window using the mouse and stores it as a 'rgb'
file (red-green-blue file). This rgb file can be
read by 'xview' (just like any other graphics file
like GIF or postscript), and the picture can be
reduced or enlarged. 'xview' also provides another
option to save this new picture as another postscript
file (or a GIF file or JPG file etc) which can be
printed directly using 'lpr'.
Do a 'man snapshot' before using it.
The right mouse gives the menu in 'xview'.
So, these three commands are useful:
(1) snapshot (2) xview (3) lpr
