Well , thanks , but I'm coding in pure C using the
win32 api.

I have something that looks like this :

HDC screendc;
HDC imagedc;
int w;
int h;

int init(void)
screendc = GetDC(NULL);
imagedc = CreateCompatibleDC(screendc);
w = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN);
h = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN);

hbm = CreateCompatibleBitmap(imagedc,w,h);

void CaptureSave(LPSTR szFname)
screendc = GetDC(NULL);


void ConvertSaveDIB(LPSTR fn,HBITMAP bm)
//I have no idea how to convert from DDB to DIB....
//I know how to save the file , but in C it's an altogether 
//different problem to get it into the right format...

//I think I saw some code once to do this , but I forgot where...

//Sorry guys , I wish I could be of more help... but I'm stuck on this
//one as well....if anyone can help , it would be appreciated.

The tears shed in vain
and the hatred and pain
will be nothing but dust
at the end of the day
