Justine's GNU Screen Configuration
# -*- conf -*-
## GNU Screen Configuration
## Justine Tunney <jart@google.com>
# GNU Screen + this config allow you to:
#
# - Have tabs inside your terminal.
#
# - Have your terminal sessions persist, even if you close your ssh connection.
# This is especially great if you hop between multiple computers or simply
# don't want to lose what you're working on.
#
# - Allow multiple clients (or humans) to view and edit the same terminal
# session simultaneously (sort of like remote desktop).
#
# This config has been battle tested across many platforms, terminal programs,
# and operating systems. It supports 256-color and doesn't screw anything up.
# It displays a pretty status bar at the bottom of your terminal so you can
# keep track of where you are. It's just awesome, ok?

## GETTING STARTED
# Shell Commands:
#
# screen -axARRS jart <- Open screen session named 'jart' in sharing mode.
# screen -aDARRS jart <- Open screen session named 'jart' in thief mode.
#
# Shortcuts (they all start with backtic: `)
#
# ` `: Type a normal backtic (by pressing it twice)
# ` d: Detach and exit screen (screen -DR brings it back)
# ` n: Go to Next tab
# ` p: Go to Previous tab
# ` k: Kill current tab
# ` A: Change title of current tab
# ` F: Force current tab to fit your terminal size in multiuser mode.
# ` [: Freezes screen so you can use the arrow keys to scroll around and
# look for information. Press '?' to start searching backwards
# and `/` to search forward (vi shortcuts). You can also use the
# scroll wheel. Press <enter> a bunch of times to exit this mode.
