Gnu screen would be a handy app for CLI users.

Since screen has so few dependencies (ncurses, ncurses-common) may I modify my request and ask that the vertical split patch be included? It appears to be as simple as patching it into the source code. Info available:http://fungi.yuggoth.org/vsp4s/. Thanks.

Uploaded.  I am not familiar with the split screen function, so please help test.  Thanks.

Oops, an issue with a conflict with the tcz version of ncurses that gets installed with bash.  Pulling it for now, will fix soon.

Screen locks up at almost any action other than ctrl+a+c and ctrl+a+tab. Specifically, ctrl+a+(S|V) which is split horizontally and vertically, respectively, freeze it up.

Does this same behavior happen with the tcz version?  I see it locking up too.

Mh first hunch was to build without the patch, but there may be something else that is affecting both tcz and scm versions.

hi friends,

in the tcz-package the vertical-screen-splitting is working... you have to use a capital S, so "C-a S".
but it's true that some shortcuts are not working that i'm used f.e. in debian.

i mentionend two of them in a forum-thread.

I have used the tcz version- I don't remember that it locked up too much- some perhaps, but the horizontal split and others did function.

Ok, I will review the build script and version used for the tcz version and see what may be different.

I see similar behavior between the tcz and scm packages.  I will poke around some more and try to find what may be causing the issues.
