My .screenrc file

Here’s my .screenrc file:

# Use C-t instead of C-a since C-a is used in bash for "go to beginning of line."
# first letter defines the screen command key.
# second letter defines the literal insert key.
escape ^Tt

# Give 3000 lines of scrollback
scrollback 3000

# Don't annoy me with the startup message for screen.
startup_message off

# Use 256 colors
term screen-256color

# Map some handy keys
bindkey "^[[1;5D" prev  # change window with ctrl-left
bindkey "^[[1;5C" next  # change window with ctrl-right

# Setup the statusbar
hardstatus alwayslastline
hardstatus string '%{= kG}%-Lw%{= kW}%50> %n*%f %t%{= kG}%+Lw%< %{= kG}%-=%D %m/%d/%y | %C:%s %A | %1`%{-}'

Also an additional hint, to reload the .screenrc file do this: C-t : source $HOME/.screenrc
