    No, not as long as you are running in a protected mode operating envirement. However, they DO provide an alternative though; but they are VERY slow (glGetPixels).

    No matter what, however, you will be needing to go through an API (or the System API) in order to do it.

    If there is no system API (Or you are running in real mode), then its a different story.
