Re: Running an intial command together with -D -R

I think screen is looking for a tty named emacs. If you give screen a bogus tty name it will work. Or you can pass another option. For example, try 'screen -D -R -t EMACS emacs'

But 'screen -D -R emacs', if there is no existing session, starts a new one
but does not start the emacs command.  I had expected it to connect to any
existing session, and if there were none, to make a new one running emacs.

If this is not supported, then the above command should give an error message
rather than ignoring the command to run.

% screen --version
Screen version 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03
