ElScreen 1.4.5 README file This is the distribution of ElScreen 1.4.5, released December 2006. It is an Emacs utility with which you can have multiple screens (window-configuration) on your GNU Emacs as well as GNU screen on terminal. If you use emacs-lisp applications which have many windows (like Gnus, irchat, Wanderlust, Mew...), ElScreen makes it easy to switch to a different screen, with its configuration unchanged. You can also create and kill screen, jump to them, rename the screen, and so on. This version is developed on (Carbon) Emacs 22.0.90, with APEL 10.6.
