I have these in my .screenrc file:

screen -t ghci 0
screen -t bash 1
screen -t dev 4

Now, I put these in my my .screenrc file to split them:

split -v

Now I want to switch to the window bash on the split screen. Right now that window is empty. How do I do that? I don't want to do that interactively. Is there any command which I can place in .screenrc which will achieve that?

The man page for screen has select, prev and next for window selection.
