Grabbing screen shots (but not to file)

I would like to be able to capture the current screen to a python object of some sort (list, string, I don't really care). Is this possilbe in Vizard, or can I only dump to .BMP files?

I can install PIL then open and read in the BMP file, but reading the file it not optimal as it may begin before the file writing ends (plus it involves using another third-party software along with Vizard). It would be much nicer if it could be done within Vizard.


If this is not possible, any suggestions on how to quickly get the screen buffer would be appreciated.
