Hello Ed,

Thanks for your response. Well my requirement is different, may be I could
not clarify properly. I am trying to explain with example. If you need utf8
support, rather than defining it at .screenrc; you can also provide command
option like *screen -U*. Similarly I like to configure hardstatus, caption
etc.. at the command option with *screen -<option>*. How can I do this ?
