==== Intro ==== ==== Intro ====
-Screen is a text-based program usually described as a window manager or terminal multiplexer.  While it does a great many things, its two biggest features are its detachability and its multiplexing.  The detachability means that you can run programs from within screen, detach and logout, then log in later, reattach, and the programs will still be there.  The multiplexing means that you can have multiple programs running within a single screen session, each within its own window.  You can display multiple windows at once, or just switch between them, even if you only have a single terminal window to use.+Screen is a text-based program usually described as a window manager or terminal multiplexer.  While it does a great many things, its two biggest features are its detachability and its multiplexing.  The detachability means that you can run programs from within screen, detach and logout, then log in later, reattach, and the programs will still be there.  The multiplexing means that you can have multiple programs running within a single screen session, each within its own window.  You can display multiple windows at once, or just switch between them, even if you only have a single terminal window to use.
