Preventing screen from entering the background
Authored by: KYPackrat on Feb 11, '10 12:23:32PM

If you want to use screen as an terminal, but don't want it to go into the background when the window dies, you will need to turn off auto-detach.

To do this, edit ~/.screenrc (it probably won't exist) and add the following line:

autodetach off

The next time you start screen, if you kill the window you will kill the session.
