I definitely think "screen" is your friend. I'm using it for a long time
now and I am absolutely satisfied with it. Maybe you should give it a try,
- From the screen man page:
Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal
between several processes (typically interactive shells). Each virtual
terminal provides the functions of a DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition,
several control functions from the ISO 6429 (ECMA 48, ANSI X3.64) and ISO 2022
standards (e.g. insert/delete line and support for multiple character sets).
There is a scrollback history buffer for each virtual terminal and a
copy-and-paste mechanism that allows moving text regions between windows.
In short, you can have multiple virtual terminals on just one connection.
You can switch between them and even take over a session you started at
home at work. Thats what I do all days :)
