Several queries

Hi all,

I have started using GNU screen recently (because I like the screen model of windows more than that of tmux, which I was using earlier), and have a bunch of queries that I couldn’t resolve:

1. I am using iTerm2 on macOS, with TERM as xterm-256color in my bashrc. I am not able to use mouse-scroll. I added "termcapinfo xterm* ti@:address@hidden to my .screenrc, but it doesn’t work.

2. Many times when I run a long-output-generating script, suddenly some garbage output gets pasted onto my terminal even after I have CTRL-C’ed the command (either within vim or in the shell prompt itself). A CTRL-L solves the issue, though.

3. Coming from tmux, miss the feature where I could zoom onto a tmux-pane and unzoom back after some moments. Is there I way I could expand a splitted region to occupy the whole width/height temporarily and un-expand it back so that the existing splits/regions stay back?

4. When I close a full-region command, say vim or top, even with ‘altscreen on’, the prompt jumps to the bottom of the terminal (though altscreen is serving its purpose of clearing the screen above the prompt). Is thee a way the prompt stays back at the place from which the command started? I remember I did not see this problem on some older version of screen on a friend’s system.

5. Is there a subreddit for gnu-screen? I couldn’t find one. I would be glad to create and manage one if you people are interested.

Please reply back for whichever query you could; thanks in advance :)
