Gnu Screen Commands
Screen is once again probably going to take part in my effort to extend the battery life on my laptop by switching to a console environment. (Letting me keep my cpufreq low.) So, here's my question I know you can start Screen already running a shell command, but is there any way to have it auto-execute a number of screen-commands at startup? Specifically:
C-a S //split the screen
C-a : Resize 1 //reduce the top to height 1
C-a Tab //switch to bottom
C-a c //put a screen shell in the bottom
I would combine this with a initially running bash script (in the top) that provides me with battery charge, time, network status, and current weather information. <gloat>Yep, wrote that myself (still working on the weather)</gloat> I felt like I can easily do without most gui tools for occasional laptop use (still would love some form of CLI word processor), but that I'd miss having an always on reminder of the time, batt, etc.
Also, is there a way to not have the "hardstatus" bar separating the windows? I tried adding "hardstatus off" to my screenrc, but to no avail. Alternatively, is there a way to use it to output arbitrary text, updatably? I could try to write some app to use it as the time etc. display. Thanks for all your help.
