Thanks. I see I have a huge range of options. To use a screen device was
the obvious alternative for a newbie like me, but of course it is absurd
as it forces me to capture and store each generated Quartz window. So, I
will immediately move to the functions designed to generate bitmaps.
Following your reply I've also reached Cairo's website. It looks a quite
interesting project! Thanks again to Simon and all contributors.
