tmux

tmux (terminal multiplexer)

Good replacement for screen.

Following is my own tmux config file.
Tried to setup as near as screen.

| .tmux.conf
set-option -g prefix C-a
unbind-key C-b 
bind-key C-a "last-window"
 
unbind '"'
unbind % # Remove default binding since we're replacing
bind | split-window -h
bind - split-window -v
bind '"' list-window
 
# Highlight active window
set-window-option -g window-status-current-bg blue
 
# Rename Based on active names
setw -g automatic-rename
 
set -g status-right '#[fg=yellow]#(uptime | cut -d "," -f 2-)'
 
setw -g monitor-activity on
set -g visual-activity on
 
# Set status bar
set -g status-bg black
set -g status-fg white
set -g status-left '#[fg=green]#H'

I have copied man page so can refer easily below.

SYNOPSIS
     tmux [-28lquv] [-c shell-command] [-f file] [-L socket-name]
	  [-S socket-path] [command [flags]]
 
DESCRIPTION
     tmux is a terminal multiplexer: it enables a number of terminals to be
     created, accessed, and controlled from a single screen.  tmux may be
     detached from a screen and continue running in the background, then later
     reattached.
 
     When tmux is started it creates a new session with a single window and
     displays it on screen.  A status line at the bottom of the screen shows
     information on the current session and is used to enter interactive com-
     mands.
 
     A session is a single collection of pseudo terminals under the management
     of tmux.  Each session has one or more windows linked to it.  A window
     occupies the entire screen and may be split into rectangular panes, each
     of which is a separate pseudo terminal (the pty(4) manual page documents
     the technical details of pseudo terminals).  Any number of tmux instances
     may connect to the same session, and any number of windows may be present
     in the same session.  Once all sessions are killed, tmux exits.
 
     Each session is persistent and will survive accidental disconnection
     (such as ssh(1) connection timeout) or intentional detaching (with the
     'C-b d' key strokes).  tmux may be reattached using:
 
	   $ tmux attach
 
     In tmux, a session is displayed on screen by a client and all sessions
     are managed by a single server.  The server and each client are separate
     processes which communicate through a socket in /tmp.
 
     The options are as follows:
 
     -2		   Force tmux to assume the terminal supports 256 colours.
 
     -8		   Like -2, but indicates that the terminal supports 88
		   colours.
 
     -c shell-command
		   Execute shell-command using the default shell.  If neces-
		   sary, the tmux server will be started to retrieve the
		   default-shell option.  This option is for compatibility
		   with sh(1) when tmux is used as a login shell.
 
     -f file	   Specify an alternative configuration file.  By default,
		   tmux loads the system configuration file from
		   /etc/tmux.conf, if present, then looks for a user configu-
		   ration file at ~/.tmux.conf.	 The configuration file is a
		   set of tmux commands which are executed in sequence when
		   the server is first started.
 
		   If a command in the configuration file fails, tmux will
		   report an error and exit without executing further com-
		   mands.
 
     -L socket-name
		   tmux stores the server socket in a directory under /tmp;
		   the default socket is named default.	 This option allows a
		   different socket name to be specified, allowing several
		   independent tmux servers to be run.	Unlike -S a full path
		   is not necessary: the sockets are all created in the same
		   directory.
 
		   If the socket is accidentally removed, the SIGUSR1 signal
		   may be sent to the tmux server process to recreate it.
 
     -l		   Behave as a login shell.  This flag currently has no effect
		   and is for compatibility with other shells when using tmux
		   as a login shell.
 
     -q		   Set the quiet server option to prevent the server sending
		   various informational messages.
 
     -S socket-path
		   Specify a full alternative path to the server socket.  If
		   -S is specified, the default socket directory is not used
		   and any -L flag is ignored.
 
     -u		   tmux attempts to guess if the terminal is likely to support
		   UTF-8 by checking the first of the LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE and
		   LANG environment variables to be set for the string
		   "UTF-8".  This is not always correct: the -u flag explic-
		   itly informs tmux that UTF-8 is supported.
 
		   If the server is started from a client passed -u or where
		   UTF-8 is detected, the utf8 and status-utf8 options are
		   enabled in the global window and session options respec-
		   tively.
 
     -v		   Request verbose logging.  This option may be specified mul-
		   tiple times for increasing verbosity.  Log messages will be
		   saved into tmux-client-PID.log and tmux-server-PID.log
		   files in the current directory, where PID is the PID of the
		   server or client process.
 
     command [flags]
		   This specifies one of a set of commands used to control
		   tmux, as described in the following sections.  If no com-
		   mands are specified, the new-session command is assumed.
 
KEY BINDINGS
     tmux may be controlled from an attached client by using a key combination
     of a prefix key, 'C-b' (Ctrl-b) by default, followed by a command key.
 
     The default command key bindings are:
 
	   C-b	       Send the prefix key (C-b) through to the application.
	   C-o	       Rotate the panes in the current window forwards.
	   C-z	       Suspend the tmux client.
	   !	       Break the current pane out of the window.
	   "	       Split the current pane into two, top and bottom.
	   #	       List all paste buffers.
	   %	       Split the current pane into two, left and right.
	   &	       Kill the current window.
	   '	       Prompt for a window index to select.
	   ,	       Rename the current window.
	   -	       Delete the most recently copied buffer of text.
	   .	       Prompt for an index to move the current window.
	   0 to 9      Select windows 0 to 9.
	   :	       Enter the tmux command prompt.
	   =	       Choose which buffer to paste interactively from a list.
	   ?	       List all key bindings.
	   D	       Choose a client to detach.
	   [	       Enter copy mode to copy text or view the history.
	   ]	       Paste the most recently copied buffer of text.
	   c	       Create a new window.
	   d	       Detach the current client.
	   f	       Prompt to search for text in open windows.
	   i	       Display some information about the current window.
	   l	       Move to the previously selected window.
	   n	       Change to the next window.
	   o	       Select the next pane in the current window.
	   p	       Change to the previous window.
	   q	       Briefly display pane indexes.
	   r	       Force redraw of the attached client.
	   s	       Select a new session for the attached client interac-
		       tively.
	   t	       Show the time.
	   w	       Choose the current window interactively.
	   x	       Kill the current pane.
	   {	       Swap the current pane with the previous pane.
	   }	       Swap the current pane with the next pane.
	   ~	       Show previous messages from tmux, if any.
	   Page Up     Enter copy mode and scroll one page up.
	   Up, Down
	   Left, Right
		       Change to the pane above, below, to the left, or to the
		       right of the current pane.
	   M-1 to M-5  Arrange panes in one of the five preset layouts: even-
		       horizontal, even-vertical, main-horizontal, main-verti-
		       cal, or tiled.
	   M-n	       Move to the next window with a bell or activity marker.
	   M-o	       Rotate the panes in the current window backwards.
	   M-p	       Move to the previous window with a bell or activity
		       marker.
	   C-Up, C-Down
	   C-Left, C-Right
		       Resize the current pane in steps of one cell.
	   M-Up, M-Down
	   M-Left, M-Right
		       Resize the current pane in steps of five cells.
 
     Key bindings may be changed with the bind-key and unbind-key commands.
 
COMMANDS
     This section contains a list of the commands supported by tmux.  Most
     commands accept the optional -t argument with one of target-client,
     target-session target-window, or target-pane.  These specify the client,
     session, window or pane which a command should affect.  target-client is
     the name of the pty(4) file to which the client is connected, for example
     either of /dev/ttyp1 or ttyp1 for the client attached to /dev/ttyp1.  If
     no client is specified, the current client is chosen, if possible, or an
     error is reported.	 Clients may be listed with the list-clients command.
 
     target-session is either the name of a session (as listed by the
     list-sessions command) or the name of a client with the same syntax as
     target-client, in which case the session attached to the client is used.
     When looking for the session name, tmux initially searches for an exact
     match; if none is found, the session names are checked for any for which
     target-session is a prefix or for which it matches as an fnmatch(3) pat-
     tern.  If a single match is found, it is used as the target session; mul-
     tiple matches produce an error.  If a session is omitted, the current
     session is used if available; if no current session is available, the
     most recently used is chosen.
 
     target-window specifies a window in the form session:window.  session
     follows the same rules as for target-session, and window is looked for in
     order: as a window index, for example mysession:1; as an exact window
     name, such as mysession:mywindow; then as an fnmatch(3) pattern or the
     start of a window name, such as mysession:mywin* or mysession:mywin.  An
     empty window name specifies the next unused index if appropriate (for
     example the new-window and link-window commands) otherwise the current
     window in session is chosen.  The special character '!' uses the last
     (previously current) window, or '+' and '-' are the next window or the
     previous window by number.	 When the argument does not contain a colon,
     tmux first attempts to parse it as window; if that fails, an attempt is
     made to match a session.
 
     target-pane takes a similar form to target-window but with the optional
     addition of a period followed by a pane index, for example: myses-
     sion:mywindow.1.  If the pane index is omitted, the currently active pane
     in the specified window is used.  If neither a colon nor period appears,
     tmux first attempts to use the argument as a pane index; if that fails,
     it is looked up as for target-window.  A '+' or '-' indicate the next or
     previous pane index, respectively.	 One of the strings top, bottom, left,
     right, top-left, top-right, bottom-left or bottom-right may be used
     instead of a pane index.
 
     The special characters '+' and '-' may be followed by an offset, for
     example:
 
	   select-window -t:+2
 
     When dealing with a session that doesn't contain sequential window
     indexes, they will be correctly skipped.
 
     shell-command arguments are sh(1) commands.  These must be passed as a
     single item, which typically means quoting them, for example:
 
	   new-window 'vi /etc/passwd'
 
     command [arguments] refers to a tmux command, passed with the command and
     arguments separately, for example:
 
	   bind-key F1 set-window-option force-width 81
 
     Or if using sh(1):
 
	   $ tmux bind-key F1 set-window-option force-width 81
 
     Multiple commands may be specified together as part of a command
     sequence.	Each command should be separated by spaces and a semicolon;
     commands are executed sequentially from left to right.  A literal semi-
     colon may be included by escaping it with a backslash (for example, when
     specifying a command sequence to bind-key).
 
     Example tmux commands include:
 
	   refresh-client -t/dev/ttyp2
 
	   rename-session -tfirst newname
 
	   set-window-option -t:0 monitor-activity on
 
	   new-window ; split-window -d
 
     Or from sh(1):
 
	   $ tmux kill-window -t :1
 
	   $ tmux new-window \; split-window -d
 
	   $ tmux new-session -d 'vi /etc/passwd' \; split-window -d \; attach
 
CLIENTS AND SESSIONS
     The tmux server manages clients, sessions, windows and panes.  Clients
     are attached to sessions to interact with them, either when they are cre-
     ated with the new-session command, or later with the attach-session com-
     mand.  Each session has one of more windows linked into it.  Windows may
     be linked to multiple sessions and are made up of one or more panes, each
     of which contains a pseudo terminal.  Commands for creating, linking and
     otherwise manipulating windows are covered in the WINDOWS AND PANES sec-
     tion.
 
     The following commands are available to manage clients and sessions:
 
     attach-session [-dr] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: attach)
	     If run from outside tmux, create a new client in the current ter-
	     minal and attach it to target-session.  If used from inside,
	     switch the current client.	 If -d is specified, any other clients
	     attached to the session are detached.  -r signifies the client is
	     read-only (only keys bound to the detach-client command have any
	     effect)
 
	     If no server is started, attach-session will attempt to start it;
	     this will fail unless sessions are created in the configuration
	     file.
 
     detach-client [-t target-client]
		   (alias: detach)
	     Detach the current client if bound to a key, or the specified
	     client with -t.
 
     has-session [-t target-session]
		   (alias: has)
	     Report an error and exit with 1 if the specified session does not
	     exist.  If it does exist, exit with 0.
 
     kill-server
	     Kill the tmux server and clients and destroy all sessions.
 
     kill-session [-t target-session]
	     Destroy the given session, closing any windows linked to it and
	     no other sessions, and detaching all clients attached to it.
 
     list-clients
		   (alias: lsc)
	     List all clients attached to the server.
 
     list-commands
		   (alias: lscm)
	     List the syntax of all commands supported by tmux.
 
     list-sessions
		   (alias: ls)
	     List all sessions managed by the server.
 
     lock-client [-t target-client]
		   (alias: lockc)
	     Lock target-client, see the lock-server command.
 
     lock-session [-t target-session]
		   (alias: locks)
	     Lock all clients attached to target-session.
 
     new-session [-d] [-n window-name] [-s session-name] [-t target-session]
	     [shell-command]
		   (alias: new)
	     Create a new session with name session-name.
 
	     The new session is attached to the current terminal unless -d is
	     given.  window-name and shell-command are the name of and shell
	     command to execute in the initial window.
 
	     If run from a terminal, any termios(4) special characters are
	     saved and used for new windows in the new session.
 
	     If -t is given, the new session is grouped with target-session.
	     This means they share the same set of windows - all windows from
	     target-session are linked to the new session and any subsequent
	     new windows or windows being closed are applied to both sessions.
	     The current and previous window and any session options remain
	     independent and either session may be killed without affecting
	     the other.	 Giving -n or shell-command are invalid if -t is used.
 
     refresh-client [-t target-client]
		   (alias: refresh)
	     Refresh the current client if bound to a key, or a single client
	     if one is given with -t.
 
     rename-session [-t target-session] new-name
		   (alias: rename)
	     Rename the session to new-name.
 
     show-messages [-t target-client]
		   (alias: showmsgs)
	     Any messages displayed on the status line are saved in a per-
	     client message log, up to a maximum of the limit set by the
	     message-limit session option for the session attached to that
	     client.  This command displays the log for target-client.
 
     source-file path
		   (alias: source)
	     Execute commands from path.
 
     start-server
		   (alias: start)
	     Start the tmux server, if not already running, without creating
	     any sessions.
 
     suspend-client [-c target-client]
		   (alias: suspendc)
	     Suspend a client by sending SIGTSTP (tty stop).
 
     switch-client [-np] [-c target-client] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: switchc)
	     Switch the current session for client target-client to
	     target-session.  If -n or -p is used, the client is moved to the
	     next or previous session respectively.
 
WINDOWS AND PANES
     A tmux window may be in one of several modes.  The default permits direct
     access to the terminal attached to the window.  The other is copy mode,
     which permits a section of a window or its history to be copied to a
     paste buffer for later insertion into another window.  This mode is
     entered with the copy-mode command, bound to '[' by default.  It is also
     entered when a command that produces output, such as list-keys, is exe-
     cuted from a key binding.
 
     The keys available depend on whether emacs or vi mode is selected (see
     the mode-keys option).  The following keys are supported as appropriate
     for the mode:
 
	   Function			vi		emacs
	   Back to indentation		^		M-m
	   Bottom of history		G		M-<
	   Clear selection		Escape		C-g
	   Copy selection		Enter		M-w
	   Cursor down			j		Down
	   Cursor left			h		Left
	   Cursor right			l		Right
	   Cursor to bottom line	L
	   Cursor to middle line	M		M-r
	   Cursor to top line		H		M-R
	   Cursor up			k		Up
	   Delete entire line		d		C-u
	   Delete to end of line	D		C-k
	   End of line			$		C-e
	   Go to line			:		g
	   Half page down		C-d		M-Down
	   Half page up			C-u		M-Up
	   Jump forward			f		f
	   Jump backward		F		F
	   Jump again			;		;
	   Jump again in reverse	,		,
	   Next page			C-f		Page down
	   Next space			W
	   Next space, end of word	E
	   Next word			w
	   Next word end		e		M-f
	   Paste buffer			p		C-y
	   Previous page		C-b		Page up
	   Previous word		b		M-b
	   Previous space		B
	   Quit mode			q		Escape
	   Rectangle toggle		v		R
	   Scroll down			C-Down or C-e	C-Down
	   Scroll up			C-Up or C-y	C-Up
	   Search again			n		n
	   Search again in reverse	N		N
	   Search backward		?		C-r
	   Search forward		/		C-s
	   Start of line		0		C-a
	   Start selection		Space		C-Space
	   Top of history		g		M->
	   Transpose chars				C-t
 
     The next and previous word keys use space and the '-', '_' and '@' char-
     acters as word delimiters by default, but this can be adjusted by setting
     the word-separators window option.	 Next word moves to the start of the
     next word, next word end to the end of the next word and previous word to
     the start of the previous word.  The three next and previous space keys
     work similarly but use a space alone as the word separator.
 
     The jump commands enable quick movement within a line.  For instance,
     typing 'f' followed by '/' will move the cursor to the next '/' character
     on the current line.  A ';' will then jump to the next occurrence.
 
     Commands in copy mode may be prefaced by an optional repeat count.	 With
     vi key bindings, a prefix is entered using the number keys; with emacs,
     the Alt (meta) key and a number begins prefix entry.  For example, to
     move the cursor forward by ten words, use 'M-1 0 M-f' in emacs mode, and
     '10w' in vi.
 
     Mode key bindings are defined in a set of named tables: vi-edit and
     emacs-edit for keys used when line editing at the command prompt;
     vi-choice and emacs-choice for keys used when choosing from lists (such
     as produced by the choose-window command); and vi-copy and emacs-copy
     used in copy mode.	 The tables may be viewed with the list-keys command
     and keys modified or removed with bind-key and unbind-key.
 
     The paste buffer key pastes the first line from the top paste buffer on
     the stack.
 
     The synopsis for the copy-mode command is:
 
     copy-mode [-u] [-t target-pane]
	     Enter copy mode.  The -u option scrolls one page up.
 
     Each window displayed by tmux may be split into one or more panes; each
     pane takes up a certain area of the display and is a separate terminal.
     A window may be split into panes using the split-window command.  Windows
     may be split horizontally (with the -h flag) or vertically.  Panes may be
     resized with the resize-pane command (bound to 'C-up', 'C-down' 'C-left'
     and 'C-right' by default), the current pane may be changed with the
     select-pane command and the rotate-window and swap-pane commands may be
     used to swap panes without changing their position.  Panes are numbered
     beginning from zero in the order they are created.
 
     A number of preset layouts are available.	These may be selected with the
     select-layout command or cycled with next-layout (bound to 'Space' by
     default); once a layout is chosen, panes within it may be moved and
     resized as normal.
 
     The following layouts are supported:
 
     even-horizontal
	     Panes are spread out evenly from left to right across the window.
 
     even-vertical
	     Panes are spread evenly from top to bottom.
 
     main-horizontal
	     A large (main) pane is shown at the top of the window and the
	     remaining panes are spread from left to right in the leftover
	     space at the bottom.  Use the main-pane-height window option to
	     specify the height of the top pane.
 
     main-vertical
	     Similar to main-horizontal but the large pane is placed on the
	     left and the others spread from top to bottom along the right.
	     See the main-pane-width window option.
 
     tiled   Panes are spread out as evenly as possible over the window in
	     both rows and columns.
 
     In addition, select-layout may be used to apply a previously used layout
     - the list-windows command displays the layout of each window in a form
     suitable for use with select-layout.  For example:
 
	   $ tmux list-windows
	   0: ksh [159x48]
	       layout: bb62,159x48,0,0{79x48,0,0,79x48,80,0}
	   $ tmux select-layout bb62,159x48,0,0{79x48,0,0,79x48,80,0}
     tmux automatically adjusts the size of the layout for the current window
     size.  Note that a layout cannot be applied to a window with more panes
     than that from which the layout was originally defined.
 
     Commands related to windows and panes are as follows:
 
     break-pane [-d] [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: breakp)
	     Break target-pane off from its containing window to make it the
	     only pane in a new window.	 If -d is given, the new window does
	     not become the current window.
 
     capture-pane [-b buffer-index] [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: capturep)
	     Capture the contents of a pane to the specified buffer, or a new
	     buffer if none is specified.
 
     choose-client [-t target-window] [template]
	     Put a window into client choice mode, allowing a client to be
	     selected interactively from a list.  After a client is chosen,
	     '%%' is replaced by the client pty(4) path in template and the
	     result executed as a command.  If template is not given, "detach-
	     client -t '%%'" is used.  This command works only from inside
	     tmux.
 
     choose-session [-t target-window] [template]
	     Put a window into session choice mode, where a session may be
	     selected interactively from a list.  When one is chosen, '%%' is
	     replaced by the session name in template and the result executed
	     as a command.  If template is not given, "switch-client -t '%%'"
	     is used.  This command works only from inside tmux.
 
     choose-window [-t target-window] [template]
	     Put a window into window choice mode, where a window may be cho-
	     sen interactively from a list.  After a window is selected, '%%'
	     is replaced by the session name and window index in template and
	     the result executed as a command.	If template is not given,
	     "select-window -t '%%'" is used.  This command works only from
	     inside tmux.
 
     display-panes [-t target-client]
		   (alias: displayp)
	     Display a visible indicator of each pane shown by target-client.
	     See the display-panes-time, display-panes-colour, and
	     display-panes-active-colour session options.  While the indicator
	     is on screen, a pane may be selected with the '0' to '9' keys.
 
     find-window [-t target-window] match-string
		   (alias: findw)
	     Search for the fnmatch(3) pattern match-string in window names,
	     titles, and visible content (but not history).  If only one win-
	     dow is matched, it'll be automatically selected, otherwise a
	     choice list is shown.  This command only works from inside tmux.
 
     join-pane [-dhv] [-l size | -p percentage] [-s src-pane] [-t dst-pane]
		   (alias: joinp)
	     Like split-window, but instead of splitting dst-pane and creating
	     a new pane, split it and move src-pane into the space.  This can
	     be used to reverse break-pane.
 
     kill-pane [-a] [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: killp)
	     Destroy the given pane.  If no panes remain in the containing
	     window, it is also destroyed.  The -a option kills all but the
	     pane given with -t.
 
     kill-window [-t target-window]
		   (alias: killw)
	     Kill the current window or the window at target-window, removing
	     it from any sessions to which it is linked.
 
     last-window [-t target-session]
		   (alias: last)
	     Select the last (previously selected) window.  If no
	     target-session is specified, select the last window of the cur-
	     rent session.
 
     link-window [-dk] [-s src-window] [-t dst-window]
		   (alias: linkw)
	     Link the window at src-window to the specified dst-window.	 If
	     dst-window is specified and no such window exists, the src-window
	     is linked there.  If -k is given and dst-window exists, it is
	     killed, otherwise an error is generated.  If -d is given, the
	     newly linked window is not selected.
 
     list-panes [-t target-window]
		   (alias: lsp)
	     List the panes in the current window or in target-window.
 
     list-windows [-t target-session]
		   (alias: lsw)
	     List windows in the current session or in target-session.
 
     move-window [-dk] [-s src-window] [-t dst-window]
		   (alias: movew)
	     This is similar to link-window, except the window at src-window
	     is moved to dst-window.
 
     new-window [-adk] [-n window-name] [-t target-window] [shell-command]
		   (alias: neww)
	     Create a new window.  With -a, the new window is inserted at the
	     next index up from the specified target-window, moving windows up
	     if necessary, otherwise target-window is the new window location.
 
	     If -d is given, the session does not make the new window the cur-
	     rent window.  target-window represents the window to be created;
	     if the target already exists an error is shown, unless the -k
	     flag is used, in which case it is destroyed.  shell-command is
	     the command to execute.  If shell-command is not specified, the
	     value of the default-command option is used.
 
	     When the shell command completes, the window closes.  See the
	     remain-on-exit option to change this behaviour.
 
	     The TERM environment variable must be set to "screen" for all
	     programs running inside tmux.  New windows will automatically
	     have "TERM=screen" added to their environment, but care must be
	     taken not to reset this in shell start-up files.
 
     next-layout [-t target-window]
		   (alias: nextl)
	     Move a window to the next layout and rearrange the panes to fit.
 
     next-window [-a] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: next)
	     Move to the next window in the session.  If -a is used, move to
	     the next window with a bell, activity or content alert.
 
     pipe-pane [-o] [-t target-pane] [shell-command]
		   (alias: pipep)
	     Pipe any output sent by the program in target-pane to a shell
	     command.  A pane may only be piped to one command at a time, any
	     existing pipe is closed before shell-command is executed.	The
	     shell-command string may contain the special character sequences
	     supported by the status-left command.  If no shell-command is
	     given, the current pipe (if any) is closed.
 
	     The -o option only opens a new pipe if no previous pipe exists,
	     allowing a pipe to be toggled with a single key, for example:
 
		   bind-key C-p pipe-pane -o 'cat >>~/output.#I-#P'
 
     previous-layout [-t target-window]
		   (alias: prevl)
	     Move to the previous layout in the session.
 
     previous-window [-a] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: prev)
	     Move to the previous window in the session.  With -a, move to the
	     previous window with a bell, activity or content alert.
 
     rename-window [-t target-window] new-name
		   (alias: renamew)
	     Rename the current window, or the window at target-window if
	     specified, to new-name.
 
     resize-pane [-DLRU] [-t target-pane] [adjustment]
		   (alias: resizep)
	     Resize a pane, upward with -U (the default), downward with -D, to
	     the left with -L and to the right with -R.	 The adjustment is
	     given in lines or cells (the default is 1).
 
     respawn-window [-k] [-t target-window] [shell-command]
		   (alias: respawnw)
	     Reactivate a window in which the command has exited (see the
	     remain-on-exit window option).  If shell-command is not given,
	     the command used when the window was created is executed.	The
	     window must be already inactive, unless -k is given, in which
	     case any existing command is killed.
 
     rotate-window [-DU] [-t target-window]
		   (alias: rotatew)
	     Rotate the positions of the panes within a window, either upward
	     (numerically lower) with -U or downward (numerically higher).
 
     select-layout [-t target-window] [layout-name]
		   (alias: selectl)
	     Choose a specific layout for a window.  If layout-name is not
	     given, the last preset layout used (if any) is reapplied.
 
     select-pane [-DLRU] [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: selectp)
	     Make pane target-pane the active pane in window target-window.
	     If one of -D, -L, -R, or -U is used, respectively the pane below,
	     to the left, to the right, or above the target pane is used.
 
     select-window [-t target-window]
		   (alias: selectw)
	     Select the window at target-window.
 
     split-window [-dhv] [-l size | -p percentage] [-t target-pane]
	     [shell-command]
		   (alias: splitw)
	     Create a new pane by splitting target-pane: -h does a horizontal
	     split and -v a vertical split; if neither is specified, -v is
	     assumed.  The -l and -p options specify the size of the new pane
	     in lines (for vertical split) or in cells (for horizontal split),
	     or as a percentage, respectively.	All other options have the
	     same meaning as for the new-window command.
 
     swap-pane [-dDU] [-s src-pane] [-t dst-pane]
		   (alias: swapp)
	     Swap two panes.  If -U is used and no source pane is specified
	     with -s, dst-pane is swapped with the previous pane (before it
	     numerically); -D swaps with the next pane (after it numerically).
	     -d instructs tmux not to change the active pane.
 
     swap-window [-d] [-s src-window] [-t dst-window]
		   (alias: swapw)
	     This is similar to link-window, except the source and destination
	     windows are swapped.  It is an error if no window exists at
	     src-window.
 
     unlink-window [-k] [-t target-window]
		   (alias: unlinkw)
	     Unlink target-window.  Unless -k is given, a window may be
	     unlinked only if it is linked to multiple sessions - windows may
	     not be linked to no sessions; if -k is specified and the window
	     is linked to only one session, it is unlinked and destroyed.
 
KEY BINDINGS
     tmux allows a command to be bound to most keys, with or without a prefix
     key.  When specifying keys, most represent themselves (for example 'A' to
     'Z').  Ctrl keys may be prefixed with 'C-' or '^', and Alt (meta) with
     'M-'.  In addition, the following special key names are accepted: Up,
     Down, Left, Right, BSpace, BTab, DC (Delete), End, Enter, Escape, F1 to
     F20, Home, IC (Insert), NPage (Page Up), PPage (Page Down), Space, and
     Tab.  Note that to bind the '"' or ''' keys, quotation marks are neces-
     sary, for example:
 
	   bind-key '"' split-window
	   bind-key "'" new-window
 
     Commands related to key bindings are as follows:
 
     bind-key [-cnr] [-t key-table] key command [arguments]
		   (alias: bind)
	     Bind key key to command.  By default (without -t) the primary key
	     bindings are modified (those normally activated with the prefix
	     key); in this case, if -n is specified, it is not necessary to
	     use the prefix key, command is bound to key alone.	 The -r flag
	     indicates this key may repeat, see the repeat-time option.
 
	     If -t is present, key is bound in key-table: the binding for com-
	     mand mode with -c or for normal mode without.  To view the
	     default bindings and possible commands, see the list-keys com-
	     mand.
 
     list-keys [-t key-table]
		   (alias: lsk)
	     List all key bindings.  Without -t the primary key bindings -
	     those executed when preceded by the prefix key - are printed.
	     Keys bound without the prefix key (see bind-key -n) are marked
	     with '(no prefix)'.
 
	     With -t, the key bindings in key-table are listed; this may be
	     one of: vi-edit, emacs-edit, vi-choice, emacs-choice, vi-copy or
	     emacs-copy.
 
     send-keys [-t target-pane] key ...
		   (alias: send)
	     Send a key or keys to a window.  Each argument key is the name of
	     the key (such as 'C-a' or 'npage' ) to send; if the string is not
	     recognised as a key, it is sent as a series of characters.	 All
	     arguments are sent sequentially from first to last.
 
     send-prefix [-t target-pane]
	     Send the prefix key to a window as if it was pressed.  If multi-
	     ple prefix keys are configured, only the first is sent.
 
     unbind-key [-cn] [-t key-table] key
		   (alias: unbind)
	     Unbind the command bound to key.  Without -t the primary key
	     bindings are modified; in this case, if -n is specified, the com-
	     mand bound to key without a prefix (if any) is removed.
 
	     If -t is present, key in key-table is unbound: the binding for
	     command mode with -c or for normal mode without.
 
OPTIONS
     The appearance and behaviour of tmux may be modified by changing the
     value of various options.	There are three types of option: server
     options, session options and window options.
 
     The tmux server has a set of global options which do not apply to any
     particular window or session.  These are altered with the set-option -s
     command, or displayed with the show-options -s command.
 
     In addition, each individual session may have a set of session options,
     and there is a separate set of global session options.  Sessions which do
     not have a particular option configured inherit the value from the global
     session options.  Session options are set or unset with the set-option
     command and may be listed with the show-options command.  The available
     server and session options are listed under the set-option command.
 
     Similarly, a set of window options is attached to each window, and there
     is a set of global window options from which any unset options are inher-
     ited.  Window options are altered with the set-window-option command and
     can be listed with the show-window-options command.  All window options
     are documented with the set-window-option command.
 
     Commands which set options are as follows:
 
     set-option [-agsuw] [-t target-session | target-window] option value
		   (alias: set)
	     Set a window option with -w (equivalent to the set-window-option
	     command), a server option with -s, otherwise a session option.
 
	     If -g is specified, the global session or window option is set.
	     With -a, and if the option expects a string, value is appended to
	     the existing setting.  The -u flag unsets an option, so a session
	     inherits the option from the global options.  It is not possible
	     to unset a global option.
 
	     Available window options are listed under set-window-option.
 
	     Available server options are:
 
	     detach-on-destroy
		     If on (the default), the client is detached when the ses-
		     sion it is attached to is destroyed.  If off, the client
		     is switched to the most recently active of the remaining
		     sessions.
 
	     escape-time
		     Set the time in milliseconds for which tmux waits after
		     an escape is input to determine if it is part of a func-
		     tion or meta key sequences.  The default is 500 millisec-
		     onds.
 
	     quiet   Enable or disable the display of various informational
		     messages (see also the -q command line flag).
 
	     Available session options are:
 
	     base-index index
		     Set the base index from which an unused index should be
		     searched when a new window is created.  The default is
		     zero.
 
	     bell-action [any | none | current]
		     Set action on window bell.	 any means a bell in any win-
		     dow linked to a session causes a bell in the current win-
		     dow of that session, none means all bells are ignored and
		     current means only bell in windows other than the current
		     window are ignored.
 
	     buffer-limit number
		     Set the number of buffers kept for each session; as new
		     buffers are added to the top of the stack, old ones are
		     removed from the bottom if necessary to maintain this
		     maximum length.
 
	     default-command shell-command
		     Set the command used for new windows (if not specified
		     when the window is created) to shell-command, which may
		     be any sh(1) command.  The default is an empty string,
		     which instructs tmux to create a login shell using the
		     value of the default-shell option.
 
	     default-shell path
		     Specify the default shell.	 This is used as the login
		     shell for new windows when the default-command option is
		     set to empty, and must be the full path of the exe-
		     cutable.  When started tmux tries to set a default value
		     from the first suitable of the SHELL environment vari-
		     able, the shell returned by getpwuid(3), or /bin/sh.
		     This option should be configured when tmux is used as a
		     login shell.
 
	     default-path path
		     Set the default working directory for processes created
		     from keys, or interactively from the prompt.  The default
		     is empty, which means to use the working directory of the
		     shell from which the server was started if it is avail-
		     able or the user's home if not.
 
	     default-terminal terminal
		     Set the default terminal for new windows created in this
		     session - the default value of the TERM environment vari-
		     able.  For tmux to work correctly, this must be set to
		     'screen' or a derivative of it.
 
	     display-panes-active-colour colour
		     Set the colour used by the display-panes command to show
		     the indicator for the active pane.
 
	     display-panes-colour colour
		     Set the colour used by the display-panes command to show
		     the indicators for inactive panes.
 
	     display-panes-time time
		     Set the time in milliseconds for which the indicators
		     shown by the display-panes command appear.
 
	     display-time time
		     Set the amount of time for which status line messages and
		     other on-screen indicators are displayed.	time is in
		     milliseconds.
 
	     history-limit lines
		     Set the maximum number of lines held in window history.
		     This setting applies only to new windows - existing win-
		     dow histories are not resized and retain the limit at the
		     point they were created.
 
	     lock-after-time number
		     Lock the session (like the lock-session command) after
		     number seconds of inactivity, or the entire server (all
		     sessions) if the lock-server option is set.  The default
		     is not to lock (set to 0).
 
	     lock-command shell-command
		     Command to run when locking each client.  The default is
		     to run lock(1) with -np.
 
	     lock-server [on | off]
		     If this option is on (the default), instead of each ses-
		     sion locking individually as each has been idle for
		     lock-after-time, the entire server will lock after all
		     sessions would have locked.  This has no effect as a ses-
		     sion option; it must be set as a global option.
 
	     message-attr attributes
		     Set status line message attributes, where attributes is
		     either none or a comma-delimited list of one or more of:
		     bright (or bold), dim, underscore, blink, reverse,
		     hidden, or italics.
 
	     message-bg colour
		     Set status line message background colour, where colour
		     is one of: black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta,
		     cyan, white, colour0 to colour255 from the 256-colour
		     palette, or default.
 
	     message-fg colour
		     Set status line message foreground colour.
 
	     message-limit number
		     Set the number of error or information messages to save
		     in the message log for each client.  The default is 20.
 
	     mouse-select-pane [on | off]
		     If on, tmux captures the mouse and when a window is split
		     into multiple panes the mouse may be used to select the
		     current pane.  The mouse click is also passed through to
		     the application as normal.
 
	     pane-border-fg colour
 
	     pane-border-bg colour
		     Set the pane border colour for panes aside from the
		     active pane.
 
	     pane-active-border-fg colour
 
	     pane-active-border-bg colour
		     Set the pane border colour for the currently active pane.
 
	     prefix keys
		     Set the keys accepted as a prefix key.  keys is a comma-
		     separated list of key names, each of which individually
		     behave as the prefix key.
 
	     repeat-time time
		     Allow multiple commands to be entered without pressing
		     the prefix-key again in the specified time milliseconds
		     (the default is 500).  Whether a key repeats may be set
		     when it is bound using the -r flag to bind-key.  Repeat
		     is enabled for the default keys bound to the resize-pane
		     command.
 
	     set-remain-on-exit [on | off]
		     Set the remain-on-exit window option for any windows
		     first created in this session.  When this option is true,
		     windows in which the running program has exited do not
		     close, instead remaining open but inactivate.  Use the
		     respawn-window command to reactivate such a window, or
		     the kill-window command to destroy it.
 
	     set-titles [on | off]
		     Attempt to set the window title using the \e]2;...\007
		     xterm code if the terminal appears to be an xterm.	 This
		     option is off by default.	Note that elinks will only
		     attempt to set the window title if the STY environment
		     variable is set.
 
	     set-titles-string string
		     String used to set the window title if set-titles is on.
		     Character sequences are replaced as for the status-left
		     option.
 
	     status [on | off]
		     Show or hide the status line.
 
	     status-attr attributes
		     Set status line attributes.
 
	     status-bg colour
		     Set status line background colour.
 
	     status-fg colour
		     Set status line foreground colour.
 
	     status-interval interval
		     Update the status bar every interval seconds.  By
		     default, updates will occur every 15 seconds.  A setting
		     of zero disables redrawing at interval.
 
	     status-justify [left | centre | right]
		     Set the position of the window list component of the sta-
		     tus line: left, centre or right justified.
 
	     status-keys [vi | emacs]
		     Use vi or emacs-style key bindings in the status line,
		     for example at the command prompt.	 Defaults to emacs.
 
	     status-left string
		     Display string to the left of the status bar.  string
		     will be passed through strftime(3) before being used.  By
		     default, the session name is shown.  string may contain
		     any of the following special character sequences:
 
			   Character pair    Replaced with
			   #(shell-command)  First line of the command's
							      output
			   #[attributes]     Colour or attribute change
			   #H		     Hostname of local host
			   #F		     Current window flag
			   #I		     Current window index
			   #P		     Current pane index
			   #S		     Session name
			   #T		     Current window title
			   #W		     Current window name
			   ##		     A literal '#'
 
		     The #(shell-command) form executes 'shell-command' and
		     inserts the first line of its output.  Note that shell
		     commands are only executed once at the interval specified
		     by the status-interval option: if the status line is
		     redrawn in the meantime, the previous result is used.
		     Shell commands are executed with the tmux global environ-
		     ment set (see the ENVIRONMENT section).
 
		     The window title (#T) is the title set by the program
		     running within the window using the OSC title setting
		     sequence, for example:
 
			   $ printf '\033]2;My Title\033\\'
 
		     When a window is first created, its title is the host-
		     name.
 
		     #[attributes] allows a comma-separated list of attributes
		     to be specified, these may be 'fg=colour' to set the
		     foreground colour, 'bg=colour' to set the background
		     colour, the name of one of the attributes (listed under
		     the message-attr option) to turn an attribute on, or an
		     attribute prefixed with 'no' to turn one off, for example
		     nobright.	Examples are:
 
			   #(sysctl vm.loadavg)
			   #[fg=yellow,bold]#(apm -l)%%#[default] [#S]
 
		     Where appropriate, special character sequences may be
		     prefixed with a number to specify the maximum length, for
		     example '#24T'.
 
		     By default, UTF-8 in string is not interpreted, to enable
		     UTF-8, use the status-utf8 option.
 
	     status-left-attr attributes
		     Set the attribute of the left part of the status line.
 
	     status-left-fg colour
		     Set the foreground colour of the left part of the status
		     line.
 
	     status-left-bg colour
		     Set the background colour of the left part of the status
		     line.
 
	     status-left-length length
		     Set the maximum length of the left component of the sta-
		     tus bar.  The default is 10.
 
	     status-right string
		     Display string to the right of the status bar.  By
		     default, the current window title in double quotes, the
		     date and the time are shown.  As with status-left, string
		     will be passed to strftime(3), character pairs are
		     replaced, and UTF-8 is dependent on the status-utf8
		     option.
 
	     status-right-attr attributes
		     Set the attribute of the right part of the status line.
 
	     status-right-fg colour
		     Set the foreground colour of the right part of the status
		     line.
 
	     status-right-bg colour
		     Set the background colour of the right part of the status
		     line.
 
	     status-right-length length
		     Set the maximum length of the right component of the sta-
		     tus bar.  The default is 40.
 
	     status-utf8 [on | off]
		     Instruct tmux to treat top-bit-set characters in the
		     status-left and status-right strings as UTF-8; notably,
		     this is important for wide characters.  This option
		     defaults to off.
 
	     terminal-overrides string
		     Contains a list of entries which override terminal
		     descriptions read using terminfo(5).  string is a comma-
		     separated list of items each a colon-separated string
		     made up of a terminal type pattern (matched using
		     fnmatch(3)) and a set of name=value entries.
 
		     For example, to set the 'clear' terminfo(5) entry to
		     '\e[H\e[2J' for all terminal types and the 'dch1' entry
		     to '\e[P' for the 'rxvt' terminal type, the option could
		     be set to the string:
 
			   "*:clear=\e[H\e[2J,rxvt:dch1=\e[P"
 
		     The terminal entry value is passed through strunvis(3)
		     before interpretation.  The default value forcibly cor-
		     rects the 'colors' entry for terminals which support 88
		     or 256 colours:
 
			   "*88col*:colors=88,*256col*:colors=256"
 
	     update-environment variables
		     Set a space-separated string containing a list of envi-
		     ronment variables to be copied into the session environ-
		     ment when a new session is created or an existing session
		     is attached.  Any variables that do not exist in the
		     source environment are set to be removed from the session
		     environment (as if -r was given to the set-environment
		     command).	The default is "DISPLAY WINDOWID SSH_ASKPASS
		     SSH_AUTH_SOCK SSH_AGENT_PID SSH_CONNECTION".
 
	     visual-activity [on | off]
		     If on, display a status line message when activity occurs
		     in a window for which the monitor-activity window option
		     is enabled.
 
	     visual-bell [on | off]
		     If this option is on, a message is shown on a bell
		     instead of it being passed through to the terminal (which
		     normally makes a sound).  Also see the bell-action
		     option.
 
	     visual-content [on | off]
		     Like visual-activity, display a message when content is
		     present in a window for which the monitor-content window
		     option is enabled.
 
     set-window-option [-agu] [-t target-window] option value
		   (alias: setw)
	     Set a window option.  The -a, -g and -u flags work similarly to
	     the set-option command.
 
	     Supported window options are:
 
	     aggressive-resize [on | off]
		     Aggressively resize the chosen window.  This means that
		     tmux will resize the window to the size of the smallest
		     session for which it is the current window, rather than
		     the smallest session to which it is attached.  The window
		     may resize when the current window is changed on another
		     sessions; this option is good for full-screen programs
		     which support SIGWINCH and poor for interactive programs
		     such as shells.
 
	     automatic-rename [on | off]
		     Control automatic window renaming.	 When this setting is
		     enabled, tmux will attempt - on supported platforms - to
		     rename the window to reflect the command currently run-
		     ning in it.  This flag is automatically disabled for an
		     individual window when a name is specified at creation
		     with new-window or new-session, or later with
		     rename-window.  It may be switched off globally with:
 
			   set-window-option -g automatic-rename off
 
	     clock-mode-colour colour
		     Set clock colour.
 
	     clock-mode-style [12 | 24]
		     Set clock hour format.
 
	     force-height height
	     force-width width
		     Prevent tmux from resizing a window to greater than width
		     or height.	 A value of zero restores the default unlim-
		     ited setting.
 
	     main-pane-width width
	     main-pane-height height
		     Set the width or height of the main (left or top) pane in
		     the main-horizontal or main-vertical layouts.
 
	     mode-attr attributes
		     Set window modes attributes.
 
	     mode-bg colour
		     Set window modes background colour.
 
	     mode-fg colour
		     Set window modes foreground colour.
 
	     mode-keys [vi | emacs]
		     Use vi or emacs-style key bindings in copy and choice
		     modes.  Key bindings default to emacs.
 
	     mode-mouse [on | off]
		     Mouse state in modes.  If on, the mouse may be used to
		     copy a selection by dragging in copy mode, or to select
		     an option in choice mode.
 
	     monitor-activity [on | off]
		     Monitor for activity in the window.  Windows with activ-
		     ity are highlighted in the status line.
 
	     monitor-content match-string
		     Monitor content in the window.  When fnmatch(3) pattern
		     match-string appears in the window, it is highlighted in
		     the status line.
 
	     remain-on-exit [on | off]
		     A window with this flag set is not destroyed when the
		     program running in it exits.  The window may be reacti-
		     vated with the respawn-window command.
 
	     synchronize-panes [on | off]
		     Duplicate input to any pane to all other panes in the
		     same window (only for panes that are not in any special
		     mode).
 
	     alternate-screen [on | off]
		     This option configures whether programs running inside
		     tmux may use the terminal alternate screen feature, which
		     allows the smcup and rmcup terminfo(5) capabilities to be
		     issued to preserve the existing window content on start
		     and restore it on exit.
 
	     utf8 [on | off]
		     Instructs tmux to expect UTF-8 sequences to appear in
		     this window.
 
	     window-status-attr attributes
		     Set status line attributes for a single window.
 
	     window-status-bg colour
		     Set status line background colour for a single window.
 
	     window-status-fg colour
		     Set status line foreground colour for a single window.
 
	     window-status-format string
		     Set the format in which the window is displayed in the
		     status line window list.  See the status-left option for
		     details of special character sequences available.	The
		     default is '#I:#W#F'.
 
	     window-status-alert-attr attributes
		     Set status line attributes for windows which have an
		     alert (bell, activity or content).
 
	     window-status-alert-bg colour
		     Set status line background colour for windows with an
		     alert.
 
	     window-status-alert-fg colour
		     Set status line foreground colour for windows with an
		     alert.
 
	     window-status-current-attr attributes
		     Set status line attributes for the currently active win-
		     dow.
 
	     window-status-current-bg colour
		     Set status line background colour for the currently
		     active window.
 
	     window-status-current-fg colour
		     Set status line foreground colour for the currently
		     active window.
 
	     window-status-current-format string
		     Like window-status-format, but is the format used when
		     the window is the current window.
 
	     word-separators string
		     Sets the window's conception of what characters are con-
		     sidered word separators, for the purposes of the next and
		     previous word commands in copy mode.  The default is
		     ' -_@'.
 
	     xterm-keys [on | off]
		     If this option is set, tmux will generate xterm(1) -style
		     function key sequences; these have a number included to
		     indicate modifiers such as Shift, Alt or Ctrl.  The
		     default is off.
 
     show-options [-gsw] [-t target-session | target-window]
		   (alias: show)
	     Show the window options with -w (equivalent to
	     show-window-options), the server options with -s, otherwise the
	     session options for target session.  Global session or window
	     options are listed if -g is used.
 
     show-window-options [-g] [-t target-window]
		   (alias: showw)
	     List the window options for target-window, or the global window
	     options if -g is used.
 
ENVIRONMENT
     When the server is started, tmux copies the environment into the global
     environment; in addition, each session has a session environment.	When a
     window is created, the session and global environments are merged with
     the session environment overriding any variable present in both.  This is
     the initial environment passed to the new process.
 
     The update-environment session option may be used to update the session
     environment from the client when a new session is created or an old reat-
     tached.  tmux also initialises the TMUX variable with some internal
     information to allow commands to be executed from inside, and the TERM
     variable with the correct terminal setting of 'screen'.
 
     Commands to alter and view the environment are:
 
     set-environment [-gru] [-t target-session] name [value]
		   (alias: setenv)
	     Set or unset an environment variable.  If -g is used, the change
	     is made in the global environment; otherwise, it is applied to
	     the session environment for target-session.  The -u flag unsets a
	     variable.	-r indicates the variable is to be removed from the
	     environment before starting a new process.
 
     show-environment [-g] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: showenv)
	     Display the environment for target-session or the global environ-
	     ment with -g.  Variables removed from the environment are pre-
	     fixed with '-'.
 
STATUS LINE
     tmux includes an optional status line which is displayed in the bottom
     line of each terminal.  By default, the status line is enabled (it may be
     disabled with the status session option) and contains, from left-to-
     right: the name of the current session in square brackets; the window
     list; the current window title in double quotes; and the time and date.
 
     The status line is made of three parts: configurable left and right sec-
     tions (which may contain dynamic content such as the time or output from
     a shell command, see the status-left, status-left-length, status-right,
     and status-right-length options below), and a central window list.	 By
     default, the window list shows the index, name and (if any) flag of the
     windows present in the current session in ascending numerical order.  It
     may be customised with the window-status-format and
     window-status-current-format options.  The flag is one of the following
     symbols appended to the window name:
 
	   Symbol    Meaning
	   *	     Denotes the current window.
	   -	     Marks the last window (previously selected).
	   #	     Window is monitored and activity has been detected.
	   !	     A bell has occurred in the window.
	   +	     Window is monitored for content and it has appeared.
 
     The # symbol relates to the monitor-activity and + to the monitor-content
     window options.  The window name is printed in inverted colours if an
     alert (bell, activity or content) is present.
 
     The colour and attributes of the status line may be configured, the
     entire status line using the status-attr, status-fg and status-bg session
     options and individual windows using the window-status-attr,
     window-status-fg and window-status-bg window options.
 
     The status line is automatically refreshed at interval if it has changed,
     the interval may be controlled with the status-interval session option.
 
     Commands related to the status line are as follows:
 
     command-prompt [-p prompts] [-t target-client] [template]
	     Open the command prompt in a client.  This may be used from
	     inside tmux to execute commands interactively.  If template is
	     specified, it is used as the command.  If -p is given, prompts is
	     a comma-separated list of prompts which are displayed in order;
	     otherwise a single prompt is displayed, constructed from template
	     if it is present, or ':' if not.  Before the command is executed,
	     the first occurrence of the string '%%' and all occurrences of
	     '%1' are replaced by the response to the first prompt, the second
	     '%%' and all '%2' are replaced with the response to the second
	     prompt, and so on for further prompts.  Up to nine prompt
	     responses may be replaced ('%1' to '%9').
 
     confirm-before [-t target-client] command
		   (alias: confirm)
	     Ask for confirmation before executing command.  This command
	     works only from inside tmux.
 
     display-message [-p] [-t target-client] [message]
		   (alias: display)
	     Display a message.	 If -p is given, the output is printed to std-
	     out, otherwise it is displayed in the target-client status line.
	     The format of message is as for status-left, with the exception
	     that #() are not handled.
 
BUFFERS
     tmux maintains a stack of paste buffers for each session.	Up to the
     value of the buffer-limit option are kept; when a new buffer is added,
     the buffer at the bottom of the stack is removed.	Buffers may be added
     using copy-mode or the set-buffer command, and pasted into a window using
     the paste-buffer command.
 
     A configurable history buffer is also maintained for each window.	By
     default, up to 2000 lines are kept; this can be altered with the
     history-limit option (see the set-option command above).
 
     The buffer commands are as follows:
 
     choose-buffer [-t target-window] [template]
	     Put a window into buffer choice mode, where a buffer may be cho-
	     sen interactively from a list.  After a buffer is selected, '%%'
	     is replaced by the buffer index in template and the result exe-
	     cuted as a command.  If template is not given, "paste-buffer -b
	     '%%'" is used.  This command works only from inside tmux.
 
     clear-history [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: clearhist)
	     Remove and free the history for the specified pane.
 
     copy-buffer [-a src-index] [-b dst-index] [-s src-session] [-t
	     dst-session]
		   (alias: copyb)
	     Copy a session paste buffer to another session.  If no sessions
	     are specified, the current one is used instead.
 
     delete-buffer [-b buffer-index] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: deleteb)
	     Delete the buffer at buffer-index, or the top buffer if not spec-
	     ified.
 
     list-buffers [-t target-session]
		   (alias: lsb)
	     List the buffers in the given session.
 
     load-buffer [-b buffer-index] [-t target-session] path
		   (alias: loadb)
	     Load the contents of the specified paste buffer from path.
 
     paste-buffer [-dr] [-b buffer-index] [-s separator] [-t target-pane]
		   (alias: pasteb)
	     Insert the contents of a paste buffer into the specified pane.
	     If not specified, paste into the current one.  With -d, also
	     delete the paste buffer from the stack.  When output, any line-
	     feed (LF) characters in the paste buffer are replaced with a sep-
	     arator, by default carriage return (CR).  A custom separator may
	     be specified using the -s flag.  The -r flag means to do no
	     replacement (equivalent to a separator of LF).
 
     save-buffer [-a] [-b buffer-index] [-t target-session] path
		   (alias: saveb)
	     Save the contents of the specified paste buffer to path.  The -a
	     option appends to rather than overwriting the file.
 
     set-buffer [-b buffer-index] [-t target-session] data
		   (alias: setb)
	     Set the contents of the specified buffer to data.
 
     show-buffer [-b buffer-index] [-t target-session]
		   (alias: showb)
	     Display the contents of the specified buffer.
 
MISCELLANEOUS
     Miscellaneous commands are as follows:
 
     clock-mode [-t target-pane]
	     Display a large clock.
 
     if-shell shell-command command
		   (alias: if)
	     Execute command if shell-command returns success.
 
     lock-server
		   (alias: lock)
	     Lock each client individually by running the command specified by
	     the lock-command option.
 
     run-shell shell-command
		   (alias: run)
	     Execute shell-command in the background without creating a win-
	     dow.  After it finishes, any output to stdout is displayed in
	     copy mode.	 If the command doesn't return success, the exit sta-
	     tus is also displayed.
 
     server-info
		   (alias: info)
	     Show server information and terminal details.
 
FILES
     ~/.tmux.conf	Default tmux configuration file.
     /etc/tmux.conf	System-wide configuration file.
 
EXAMPLES
     To create a new tmux session running vi(1):
 
	   $ tmux new-session vi
 
     Most commands have a shorter form, known as an alias.  For new-session,
     this is new:
 
	   $ tmux new vi
 
     Alternatively, the shortest unambiguous form of a command is accepted.
     If there are several options, they are listed:
 
	   $ tmux n
	   ambiguous command: n, could be: new-session, new-window, next-window
 
     Within an active session, a new window may be created by typing 'C-b c'
     (Ctrl followed by the 'b' key followed by the 'c' key).
 
     Windows may be navigated with: 'C-b 0' (to select window 0), 'C-b 1' (to
     select window 1), and so on; 'C-b n' to select the next window; and 'C-b
     p' to select the previous window.
 
     A session may be detached using 'C-b d' (or by an external event such as
     ssh(1) disconnection) and reattached with:
 
	   $ tmux attach-session
 
     Typing 'C-b ?' lists the current key bindings in the current window; up
     and down may be used to navigate the list or 'q' to exit from it.
 
     Commands to be run when the tmux server is started may be placed in the
     ~/.tmux.conf configuration file.  Common examples include:
 
     Changing the default prefix key:
 
	   set-option -g prefix C-a
	   unbind-key C-b
	   bind-key C-a send-prefix
 
     Turning the status line off, or changing its colour:
 
	   set-option -g status off
	   set-option -g status-bg blue
 
     Setting other options, such as the default command, or locking after 30
     minutes of inactivity:
 
	   set-option -g default-command "exec /bin/ksh"
	   set-option -g lock-after-time 1800
 
     Creating new key bindings:
 
	   bind-key b set-option status
	   bind-key / command-prompt "split-window 'exec man %%'"
	   bind-key S command-prompt "new-window -n %1 'ssh %1'"
