What is the .screenrc file for? I have seen it in some dotfiles repos and such but I don't quite understand what it's for.

Judging from the name it sets settings for the Terminal itself, not the shell, am I correct on this? I suppose not, in that case, what is it actually for? And does it change from shell to shell?

~/.screenrc is the user-specific configuration file for GNU Screen. You can find more information in the user manual.

Ah I see, OK, don't know how I didn't think of that. Basically the equivalent of .tmux.conf but for Screen. Thanks! –  Greduan Dec 24 '12 at 20:24
