This manual is the first in a 4 part series in using some basic command line applications.
In this part of the series we focus on installing SCREEN, a terminal application for the Linux command line. Screen enables you to run several command line applications (in different shells) at the same time. ( And leave them running even if you disconnect from the shell, so you can re-connect later).
You can use screen on the “local” command line window on your linux system. ( working locally on the computer) or via an SSH connection if you have setup an SSH-server as we explained earlier on in the KWTV Screencasts : Episode one and Episode two
