Ok I have been tinkering around a little bit and I actually want to take this a 
step further.  I want to write a screen "macro" that does the following things 
in sequence (I've put the required key for each step at the end of the numbered 

1) Enter copy mode: ^a[
2) Go to the top of the buffer: g
3) Go forward to the first word: w
4) Begin block selection SPACE
5) Go to the end of the buffer G
6) End block selection SPACE

I found an example online I am not 100% sure how to deal with the spaces so I 
decided to deal steps 1-3 first.  I found this link online that suggests I 
should be able to send multiple characters to screen's input queue by 
leveraging the register and process commands such as;

register j ^a[gw
bindkey j process j

The page that I found this information at is:

I also referenced the GNU documentation and what I have looks like it should do 
the trick.  The only thing that I see that might need to be tweaked is the -e 
option, although GNU's documentation doesn't specify what my options are in 
this regard.  I guess my problem is that it's not working.  When I try to use 
the bindkey and register at the top what I receive is "No other window" on 
screens status bar at the bottom of the screen.

Has anybody successfully bound a key to process a register that interacts with 
screen's buffering capabilities?  Could you maybe share the syntax of your key 
binding and register with me?
