|Full description=A full screen window manager that lets a physical terminal handle several processes, typically interactive shells. Each virtual terminal provides the functions of a DEC VT100 terminal as well as several control functions from the ANSI X3.64 and ISO 2022 standards. 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.

GNU Screen

https://www.gnu.org/software/screen/
Multi-screen window manager.

Screen is a terminal window manager that multiplexes a single terminal between several processes. The virtual terminals each provide features such as a scroll-back buffer and a copy-and-paste mechanism. Screen then manages the different virtual terminals, allowing to easily switch between them, to detach them from the current session, or even splitting the view to show two terminals at once.
