Screen hardstatus

GingerDog saw my screen and was curious about the status line I have. The entire screenrc I use.


Screen snapshot

(the thingy at the bottom of the image) It’s achieved using the following magic incantation in my
.screenrc

hardstatus on hardstatus lastline "%c:%s – %-Lw%{=BW}%50>%n%f*t%{-}%+Lw%<"
 

Oh, and each window gets
automatically named after the program running in it using the
following.

shelltitle "$ |bash"
 

(Update 17/04/2006:
This appears to only work in a linux terminal, not any of the
X-terms. The X-terms seem to set the window title instead and I’m
not sure how to change this at the moment. I’m going to carry on
looking in to it though.) (Update 18/04/2006: Got it, for gui
terminals instead of “lastline” use “alwayslastline”)

hardstatus on hardstatus alwayslastline "%c:%s – %-Lw%{=BW}%50>%n%f*%t%{-}%+Lw%< "
