screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes (typically interactive shells).
Each virtual terminal provides the functions of a DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition, sev- eral control functions from the ISO 6429 (ECMA 48, ANSI X3.64) and ISO 2022 standards (e.g. insert/delete line and support for multiple character sets). There is a scroll- back history buffer for each virtual terminal and a copy- and-paste mechanism that allows moving text regions between windows.
