I just figured out that it was possible to have split terminals with gnu screen. But the problem is that it doesn't split windows, but create a new region which is always present. I'd like to be able to switch from a split window to another non-split window...
- in window 0 I'd like to run gdb split with minicom
- in another (window 1) I just would like to have a terminal
- in another (window 2) another instance of gdb split with another instance of minicom.
I can get this behaviour when calling screen inside screen!
But I'd like to know if it is possible to do that in a single session of screen. Because the ^a a escape thing really bothers me...
