tmux is a terminal multiplexer

What is a terminal multiplexer? It lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more. See the manual.

Download tmux 1.9a (Changelog) or get the development version. tmux is hosted on SourceForge and needs libevent and ncurses .

For support contact the mailing list or IRC channel #tmux on freenode.

There are some programs to use with tmux on GitHub and a book on tmux.
