Screen Users,

Something that comes up for me from time to time is I want to attach to currently running screen from elsewhere. The problem at this point is to determine the pid of that session, since I am always running several screens at once.

What would be ideal it seems to be is to add the pid of the current screen session to my harstatus line, so I could just with a glance get that pid for attaching purposes.

However from my perusal of the docs, it doesn't seem like the pid is one of the supported variables.

If you are using the development version (, you can use "%p" or "$PID".
