comment Showing GNU screen session name and window title in shell prompt
If GNU screen has been compiled with the -Q (query) option, then you can run some commands, such as title and windows and have the data display to stdout, however, without a trailing newline.

comment help with remote file find/scp
Does the key you are trying to use have a passphrase? You can avoid using ssh-agent/ssh-add by using the -i option on sftp.

comment Change the parent process of a process?
Nothing happens to the subprocesses, they continue on as nothing has changed for them. If you are reattaching, then yes, the same server process and subprocesses will be connected to. You can tell screen to create a new session with new subprocesses, but then you wouldn't be reconnecting. Most of the reference is the source code itself. There is an info doc (info screen) with a bit more information, but not to the depth in this discussion.
