tmux is a terminal multiplexer: it enables a number of terminals (or windows), each running a separate program, 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.

tmux uses a client-server model. The server holds multiple sessions and each window is a independent entity which may be freely linked to multiple sessions, moved between sessions and otherwise manipulated. Each session may be attached to (display and accept keyboard input from) multiple clients.

tmux is intended to be a modern, BSD-licensed alternative to programs such as GNU screen. Major features include: More Info »
