      4 xscreen is a X11 screenshot utility.
      5 I recommend binding its commands to window manager keys.

     21 By default, it takes a screenshot of the root window, uses no delay and
     22 stores the image in a PNG file.
     23 You can capture the focused window with -u.
     24 You can select a rectangle region with -s and freeze the screen while capturing
     25 it with -z.
     26 To save in a JPEG, use -j with a parameter to define the quality (1-100).
     27 A delay can be set in seconds with -d.
     28 A path and filename can be specified with -f.
