<p>tmux is a terminal multiplexer: it enables a number of terminals (or
windows), each running a separate program, to be created, accessed, and
controlled from a single screen. tmux may be detached from a screen and
continue running in the background, then later reattached.</p>
<p>The latest version is <a href="">tmux %%VERSION%%</a>.</p>
<p>tmux uses a client-server model. The server holds multiple sessions and each
window is an independent entity which may be freely linked to multiple sessions,
moved between sessions and otherwise manipulated. Each session may be attached
to (display and accept keyboard input from) multiple clients.</p>
<p>tmux is intended to be a modern, BSD-licensed alternative to programs such
as GNU screen. Major features include:</p>
<li>A powerful, consistent, well-documented and easily scriptable command
<li>A window may be split horizontally and vertically into panes.</li>
<li>Panes can be freely moved and resized, or arranged into preset
layouts. </li>
<li>Support for UTF-8 and 256-colour terminals.</li>
<li>Copy and paste with multiple buffers.</li>
<li>Interactive menus to select windows, sessions or clients.</li>
<li>Change the current window by searching for text in the target.</li>
<li>Terminal locking, manually or after a timeout.</li>
<li>A clean, easily extended, BSD-licensed codebase, under active
<p>tmux is part of the <a href="">OpenBSD</a> base
system. The portable version is hosted on <a href="">
SourceForge</a> and runs on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Solaris and AIX.
It depends on <a href="">libevent 1.4 or 2.0</a> and a
terminfo implementation (normally <a href="">ncurses</a>).</p>
<p>A few people have written programs which can be used with tmux:
<a href="">tmux-ruby</a>,
<a href="">tmuxinator</a>,
<a href="">tmux-applets</a> and
<a href="">teamocil</a>.
There is a
<a href="">book on tmux</a> by Brian P Hogan.</p>
