    1 = Welcome to Trac 1.0.9 =
     1= Welcome to Gotcha! =
     3Gotcha! is a small utility for OS/2, eComStation, and ArcaOS which allows for the capturing of windows, window interiors, parts of the screen, or the entire desktop, and saving such images to disk or to the clipboard (in several file formats).
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     5It has options for serial capture (automatically taking a capture every n seconds) and batch mode (take a capture, save, and exit).
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     7The original author, Thorsten Thielen, wrote Gotcha! mainly because all other screen capture programs for OS/2 that he found at the time were either quite outdated, part of another (usually large) program, buggy, and/or not free.
