Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I ended up doing a backtick command with both parameters set to zero, calling a script which itself simply calls getppid (get parent pid) and writes it to stdout

    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".
