The Basics of Linux Screen

Screen is an awesome utility that offers the ability to detach a long running process (or program, shell-script, irc window, etc.) from a session and then attach it back at a later time.  Below are the basics:

To get started, enter:

To see your existing screen sessions, enter:
      screen -list

To detach an attached screen, enter:  
      screen -D

To re-attach to a detached screen, enter:
      screen -r
