I know its possible to change the name of the logfile with "set filename"

I'd like to have screen write its log files to the name of the window. how can I accomplish this ?


check the man and you will find that there is an escape

t    window title

that can be used in filenames

  • Thanks. I must have missed "or filenames". "logfile ~/logs/%t.log" does the tricks in .screenrc. – zack May 4 '10 at 12:52
