I want to know how to store/save  graphics output of c program as bmp file, so I can
view it as bmp file and also how to take print of image on screen.
pls give some idea.

If you are running on Microsoft Windows platform,
you can use the window's built-in screen capture
ability. I have not use the screen capture function

If you are running OS other than MS Windows,
you can try using a screen capture software. Most
