I should add that you can run multiple screens, and you easily switch between them (this is the intended use)

I think this could be accomplished rather easily with screen (in the terminal type "which screen" to see if it's installed).

It will change a few key strokes, but nothing major.

Good thing is about screen, is when you're disconnected, you can ssh back in and re-attach to the screen and everything is there.

I do customer support and I shift from one problem to another problem and then back to the first problem.

Is it possible to save the current state of emacs which includes the buffers in particular and maybe the "register" values (when I do point-to-register) to a file.  Then clear the state, work on a new problem, save the new state at that time.  Then be able to go back and restore the first state?

Utopia would each of these states to be saved in its own individual file.

I've been told of a packaged named "windows" that does this but I can't find it because the name gets too many hits.

Thank you,
