Including is how I do this, in fact the following is from my screenrc.

source ${HOME}/.screenrc-${TERM}

any support for any "if" branching in screenrc's? i two windows boxes
using a common (network-based) homedir, and i want screen to start two
completely different sets of ssh sessions depending on which box it's
executed on. i suppose i can allias screen to "screen -c
.screenrc.`hostname` or something, but a.) that's clumsy and b.) it
doesn't easily handle any common settings between the two. hmm. can
screenrc's include other files? can it be read from stdin? ("screen -c
-" or "screen -c /dev/stdin" or something?) then i could say "cat
.screenrc .screenrc.`hostname` | screen -c -". or maybe there's some
other way to just do the actual variant part (create various
screens)--execute a shell script or something, and let that handle the
branching. thoughts?
