About

GNU Screen is a GNU command line application which lets you create and access virtual terminal sessions.

Local manpage: screen

Notes

From outside screen:

  • screen -R reconnects to the most recently-created session.
  • screen -ls lists the available sessions.
  • screen -r <pid.tty.host> reconnects to the specified session (note: .host is optional)
  • If Screen refuses to connect to a specified session, that may be because it's already "attached" – use screen -r -d <pid.tty.host> to detach it first if necessary.

From within Screen:

  • [CTRL-A] d disconnects (detaches) from the current session (but does not end it)
