I'm looking for a way to get the current window title in GNU screen .
I have a script that use
screen -X title something to change the window title when running and I would like to set it back to it's previous value at the end of the script.
You can take a look at two of my blog posts regarding using zsh kludges to make this work,
I use a combination of factors to do it, primarily a preexec() hook in my shell, which can just as easily work with another shell.
I believe that the code in the post may be outdated, the relevant files are always up to date here:
If you're a vim user, you'll almost certainly want to
set titleold to something meaningful as well to avoid your title getting clobbered on exit.
