One nice feature of screen is its ability to assign keyboard shortcuts to groups called "classes". With
bind -c, you could assign that shortcuts to a particular class, and binding
command -c <class> to a key allowed you to select that class. This allowed multi-tier keyboard shortcuts. For example, I used the
x key to select a class dedicated common commands. By having these launcher shortcuts in their own class, it is possible to use mnemonic keys without worrying about conflicts with the normal set of key-bindings. Is there any way to replicate this feature in
# from my .screenrc bind -c execute o screen -t imap 10 offlineimap.sh -o bind -c execute m screen -t mpd ncmpcpp bind -c execute w screen -t vw vimwiki # ... more application launchers bind x command -c execute
Usage: prefixx enters the launcher key class, where I put all my application keyboard shortcuts.
