GNU Screen 4.0.3

by Juergen Weigert

Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes, typically interactive shells. Each virtual terminal provides the functions of the DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition, several control functions from the ANSI X3.64 (ISO 6429) and ISO 2022 standards (e.g., insert/delete line and support for multiple character sets).There is a scrollback history buffer for each virtual terminal and a copy-and-paste mechanism that allows the user to move text regions between windows. When screen is called, it creates a single window with a shell in it (or the specified command) and then gets out of your way so that you can use the program as you normally would.Then, at any time, you can create new (full-screen) windows with other programs in them (including more shells), kill the current window, view a list of the active windows, turn output logging on and off, copy text between windows, view the scrollback history, switch between windows, etc. All windows run their programs completely independent of each other. Programs continue to run when their window is currently not visible and even when the whole screen session is detached from the users terminal.Usage: screen [-opts] [cmd [args]] or: screen -r [host.tty]Options:-aForce all capabilities into each window's termcap.-A -[r|R]Adapt all windows to the new display width & height.-c fileRead configuration file instead of '.screenrc'.-d (-r)Detach the elsewhere running screen (and reattach here).-dmS nameStart as daemon: Screen session in detached mode.-D (-r)Detach and logout remote (and reattach here).-D -RRDo whatever is needed to get a screen session.-e xyChange command characters.-fFlow control on, -fn = off, -fa = auto.-h linesSet the size of the scrollback history buffer.-iInterrupt output sooner when flow control is on.-lLogin mode on (update /var/run/utmp), -ln = off.-listor -ls.
