I use ElScreen every time I open Emacs. May as well make a quick note about it.
If you know what that means, great. If not, then pretend ElScreen is a weird way to make emacs a tabbed editor.
Start ElScreen in your init file.
Now the elscreen commands are available throughout your Emacs session.
ElScreen Usage shows many commands for ElScreen. I manage with just a few.
|Ctrl+z c||Create a new screen and switch to it.|
|Ctrl+z n||Cycle to the next screen|
|Ctrl+z p||Cycle to the previous screen|
|Ctrl+z k||Kill the current screen|
|Ctrl+z ?||Show ElScreen key bindings|
I know. A tutorial or something would be nice. But every time I start to write a tutorial for something, I think of one more detail that hasn’t been covered and the cycle starts all over again on the new detail. Just needed something here so I could shut my brain up about "why don’t you mention ElScreen?"
