screen -X hardcopy

Hi All,

I start myServer program by means of  screen  by typing the command:
screen   -S myApp -d -m myServer

When I try to get the buffer hardcopy of the output which myServer prints I
use the command:
screen  -S myApp  -X hardcopy  ./buffer.txt

Unfortunately ./buffer.txt is epmty.

When I attach and detach  to the screen with the command:
screen -r

and when I use the command once again:
screen  -S myApp  -X hardcopy  ./buffer.txt 

I get the ./buufer.txt file with the valid contents.

Does anybody know how to configure screen in order to use "screen  -S myApp 
-X hardcopy  ./buffer.txt" without the need to  launch the command screen -r
(to attach/detach) beforehand.

Thanks in advance for any hint
