A "buffed up" version of the Snapshot example, Super Snapshot goes above and beyond the call of carbonization. Includes such additions as multiple windows, saving snapshots to a PICT file, dynamic resizing of windows (perhaps the only example that does this using the "classic" or traditional event model), different menus for OS 9 and X, handling the Apple Event "Quit," and a special menu that will set the desktop on OS 9 and display full screen snapshots on OS X. Requirements: Color QuickDraw, CarbonLib Keywords: Snapshot, screen shot, pixmap, Carbon, PICT
