  • I also love screen -S project

    Using this, you can give each screen session a name, which makes it very easy to reconnect to the right session later using screen -r project

    And if you forgot which names you used, type screen -ls to get a list of all sessions inlcuding their names (and names are easier to remember than random PIDs..

  • Unfortunately, I bound my screen hotkey to ^Y some years ago. Before remembering it's the Emacs paste key. Ooops.

    There are two other things I find useful in screen:

    • The scrollbuffer on ^]-ESC. After that, you can page back through output using vi keybindings. You can use it to do copy-paste, but I rarely need that.
    • You can get screen to split the window in two by doing ^]-S. After that, you can flick between the two with ^]-TAB. You don't need it that often, but it's sometimes kind of handy.
