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.

comment Change the parent process of a process?
The server would listen on a socket (usually a UNIX domain socket file) waiting for connections. The client(s) would open a connection on that socket. Tabs are irrelevant to the communication between the client and the server, it could different tabs, different teminal emulates (xterm vs rxvt vs terminal), or could be xemacs. Each client knows where to connect, so it could be from anywhere.

comment Change the parent process of a process?
Every process has only one parent, until either the parent dies or it dies. If it dies, the point is moot. If the parent dies, then the PPID becomes 1, the init process. This is the only time the parent process would change - when the parent process terminates. Connecting via interprocess communication (pipes, sockets, etc.) has no affect on the PPID.

comment Problematic bc calculation in shell script
I don't see the issue and I am using Bash 4.3.11(1)-release as well. The seq is working properly as well as the bc. @Vesnog, have you narrowed down which statement is causing the syntax error (add set -x to the beginning of the script)?
