Screen command offers the ability to detach a long running process (or program, or shell-script) from a session and then attach it back at a later time.
When the session is detached, the process that was originally started from the screen is still running and managed by the screen. You can then re-attach the session at a later time, and your terminals are still there, the way you left them.
In this article, let us review the how to manage the virtual terminal sessions using screen command with examples.

Screen Command Example 1: Execute a command (or shell-script), and detach the screen

Typically you’ll execute a command or shell-script as shown below from the command.

$ unix-command-to-be-executed

$ ./unix-shell-script-to-be-executed

Instead, use the screen command as shown below.

$ screen unix-command-to-be-executed

$ screen ./unix-shell-script-to-be-executed

Once you’ve used the screen command, you can detach it from the terminal using any one of the following method.

Screen Detach Method 1: Detach the screen using CTRL+A d

When the command is executing, press CTRL+A followed by d to detach the screen.

Screen Detach Method 2: Detach the screen using -d option

When the command is running in another terminal, type the command as following.

$ screen -d SCREENID

Screen Command Example 2: List all the running screen processes

You can list all the running screen processes using screen -ls command.
For example:
On terminal 1 you did the following:

$ screen ./

From terminal 2 you can view the list of all screen processes. You can also detach it from terminal 2 as shown below.

$ screen -ls
There is a screen on:
 4491.pts-2.FC547 (Attached)
1 Socket in /var/run/screen/S-sathiya.

$ screen -d 4491.pts-2.FC547
[4491.pts-2.FC547 detached.]

Screen Command Example 3: Attach the Screen when required

You can attach the screen at anytime by specifying the screen id as shown below. You can get the screen id from the “screen -ls
