boxcutter is a simple command line-driven screenshot
program for Microsoft Windows. Unlike using the "Print Screen" key
that takes a full-screen screenshot, boxcutter allows the
user to screenshot a smaller portion of the screen by dragging a box
and automatically saves the screenshot to a specified
file. boxcutter can also run without command line, in
which case it will by default place a screenshot onto the clipboard.
If the --coords option is given, a rectangle of the screen
will be used for capture.
usage: boxcutter [OPTIONS] [OUTPUT_FILENAME]
Saves a screenshot to 'OUTPUT_FILENAME' if given. Only output formats
"*.bmp" and "*.png" are supported. If no file name is given,
screenshot is stored on clipboard by default.
-c, --coords X1,Y1,X2,Y2 capture the rectange (X1,Y1)-(X2,Y2)
-f, --fullscreen fullscreen screenshot
-v, --version display version information
-h, --help display help message
