I’m sure you’ve had one of these moments:

  • ssh to a server
  • start a long running command
  • wanted to disconnect and go home
  • Oh Damn! I should have used screen!

I have long wanted such a tool Now there appears to be a solution.

reptyr seems to fit the bill. That URL also describes a few other tools:

  1. screenify
  2. retty

I’m hoping someone will port this to FreeBSD soon.
