Screen

https://www.gnu.org/software/screen
A full screen window manager that lets a physical terminal handle several processes, typically interactive shells.

Each virtual terminal has a scrollback history buffer and a copy/paste mechanism to move text regions between windows. "Screen" creates a single window with a shell (or a specified command) in it; after that you run the program as you normally would. You can create new full-screen windows with other programs in them, including more shells, at any time; you can also kill the current window, view a list of active windows, toggle output logging, copy text between windows, view the scrollback history, switch between windows, etc. Windows run their programs independently of each other; programs keep running even if their window is not visible or the whole screen session detaches from the terminal.
