5 Useful Screen commands

I’ve previously written about Screen in Stupid Must Knows – Screen. Screen is not only useful when working with a poor connection, but also if you want to toggle or copy between multiple screens on the same remote server. Instead of ssh-ing into two different terminals and using a mouse to copy back and forth, ssh once, split the screen, and stick with the keyboard.

Split screen vertically C-a |
Move cursor to the next screen C-a tab
Start command line in new screen C-a C
Copy text C-a [ enter, move cursor, enter
Paste text C-a ]

So, what do you think ?
