I am trying to automate my work flow. I have a script that opens individual window in screen for each IP in a list. Imagine
setupscreen.sh <IP1> <IP2> .... After all windows are open, each
sshs to the proper server and sets the title to
hostname on that particular server. I keep window 0 as my utility window from where I execute other scripts. For example I send commands to all windows, loop over each window with 1 second interval, and so on. This is all good, but the problem is, I get the window count from my script when I create them. If I close a window, this is no longer accurate.
The question is how can I get (through scripting) my window count and if possible the remaining windows indexes.
All clusters I need to login and perform tasks have
screen and almost non of them have
tmux and it's hustle to get it there.
