Program to take screenshot of modal GUI figures.

Recently, while preparing a GUI function for submission to the file exchange I wanted to capture a screenshot, but I couldn't easily do it because the GUI function is modal and I couldn't run getframe from the command line. So, I wrote Snapshot. It facilitates taking a screenshot of a modal GUI figure or any other figure for that matter. It's very easy to use and the image is placed in a variable in the base workspace.
