+    (description
+     "Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical
+terminal between several processes, typically interactive shells. Each virtual
+terminal provides the functions of the DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition,
+several control functions from the ANSI X3.64 (ISO 6429) and ISO 2022 standards
+(e.g., insert/delete line and support for multiple character sets). There is a
+scrollback history buffer for each virtual terminal and a copy-and-paste
+mechanism that allows the user to move text regions between windows. When
+screen is called, it creates a single window with a shell in it (or the
+specified command) and then gets out of your way so that you can use the
+program as you normally would. Then, at any time, you can create new
+(full-screen) windows with other programs in them (including more shells), kill
+the current window, view a list of the active windows, turn output logging on
+and off, copy text between windows, view the scrollback history, switch between
+windows, etc. All windows run their programs completely independent of each
+other. Programs continue to run when their window is currently not visible and
+even when the whole screen session is detached from the users terminal.")
