screen does 0wn [Dec. 19th, 2000|04:38 pm]

screen -d -r

so damn cool!

I have a connection to livejournal in gnome-terminal on my left monitor and PuTTY on my windows monitor.... running emacs in screen.... type screen -d -r on one of the sessions and emacs pops up on the screen, and automatically resizes to match the window size, with the same document loaded and the cursor at the same position.

so damn cool.

screen -D is pretty neat too..... and "C-a x" to lock the screen.

yes .... very cool. thanks to at0m for introducing this to me awhile back... should have sat down and learned it then.

I've actually been working on learning vim... evan taught me a bit and I went through the tutorial for a half hour or so.

I use vi when a program throws me into it and I just need to make a quick change.

For big projects I still have to use emacs.

The common use is for IRC.
Find a host that has cool reverse DNS (best I have is klone.nwraves.net or datajack.phiber.org) and then run IRC in a screen on that. Never quit, just ctl-a ctl-d when you're bored with IRC, and you'll always maintain a presence...
