Gnu Screen - split screens

18 Mar 2012

One of the features I’ve always wished Gnu screen had was the ability to split a screen horizontally, so you can for example run a grep or mc in the top half of the terminal, and some commands in the bottom half.

share a screen session

[Screen][1] is a really useful console tool that allows you to copy and paste text, scroll back through screen output, reattach if you lose your connection, and so on. One useful trick is sharing a screen between 2 or more users, so you can see what each other is doing whilsts typing – useful for learning or solving a difficult problem (see also [LinuxQuestions.Org][2]).
