Hi All,

Wish you a happy new year.

Could you please help on this.,

How will you number the screens/tabs more than 9.

ie when i number it as 10, I m not able to access that tab.

When i press 10, it is still going to 1 only.

Appreciate your kind help on this.,

1. How do I abbreviate a command like `select` to (say) `s'
in command mode?

2. How do I return the screen number, the following script
invoked with args username and screen number used to work but
does now anymore:

`w|awk 'NR>2 && $1 == u && $3 ~ ".*:S\." w "$" {
print $2; exit
}' u="$1" w="$2"`
echo "/dev/$tty"
