Welcome to tmux!

tmux is a terminal multiplexer. It lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more. See the tmux(1) manual page and the README.

Download tmux 2.7 here (changes in this version).

For support see the FAQ or contact the tmux-users@googlegroups.com mailing list or #tmux IRC channel on freenode.

tmux depends on libevent and ncurses.

There are many online introductions to tmux (some are here and here) and a few books (including a nice online book).
