Whether to bring window to top before reading.
The possible components are
"luminance" (the sum of the three
colors). All are scaled from 0 to 1.
Note that the luminance is kept below 1 by truncating the sum; this is the
definition used for the
GL_LUMINANCE component in OpenGL.
A vector, matrix or array containing the desired components. If one component is requested, a vector or matrix will be returned depending on the size of block requested (length 1 dimensions are dropped); if more, an array, whose last dimension is the list of components.

demo("stereo") for functions that make use of this to draw
