Screen - extra options

Controlling screen inside screen

ctrl+a a will pass the escape sequence (ctrl+a) to the sub-screen..

So, ctrl+a a d will do ctrl+a d in the sub-screen (detaching it)

It works with any screen command, for example ctrl+a, a, c will create a window in the sub-screen


Customizing screen

Save in $HOME/.screenrc

Enable UTF-8

# Support UTF-8
defutf8 on
utf8 on on

Start screen with screen -U

Much more usable bottom screen line
