Gnu Screen .screenrc tricks

31 Jan 2008

Here’s a variety of tricks I’ve picked up for Gnu screen and .screenrc from the Screen Users Email List

  • to have a screen change to a different directory when launched, use the chdir command (not cd):

chdir $HOME/rails
screen -t “rails”

  • to change back to a particular screen, after creating a whole lot in .screenrc, and preset the ‘other’ screen:

select 3 (for example)
select 5
