How do I copy the screen, so that I can put it into an e-mail msg?

If you are using the MSYS shell, 

myprog > /dev/clipboard

Goto your mail client window and CTRL-C.

If you want to just copy the screen you can create a picture image and upload it to some web share.  You could attach it but I tend not to open those.
