In the middle of the desert you can say anything you want

Screen tips

  • Screen screens:
    • screen -R screename attaches a screen with this name or creates it.
      • Tab completion works!
      • You can only write part of the name, will work if it’s enough to identify it
    • <C-a> :sessionname newscreenname renames an existing instance
  • ~/.screenrc exists. Some useful settings:
    • defscrollback 200000 for “infinite” scrollback
    • deflog on to log everything automatically
  • Using screen when no screen is installed1 : connect to it with ssh from any other server that does have screen installed.
