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):
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)
- to search backwards in scrollback mode – ?. You can also search forwards with** /,** but that’s less useful. See samsarin.com for a good explanation of scrollback mode.
