I would like to create a bash script to automatically open a screen window with 4 sessions running predetermined commands. I'd like to open htop and slurm on the top two frames, squidview in the middle large frame and a blank terminal on the bottom large frame. Is this possible to set up with a single bash script?


This does something like you desire:

$ cat my_screenrc
screen top 
focus down
screen vmstat 1
focus down
focus bottom
$ screen -c my_screenrc

screen appears to be more directed toward screen flipping than multiple panels and the documentation is pretty arcane.
