Some may recall my previous trys, and failures, to create macros using screen 

I was using exec tied to a bindkey in screenrc to run a shell script which 
contained a series of the stuff commmands to send instructions to
the current application.

It didn't work.  By experiment I found that switching to another window and 
doing the shell script at the cli worked.

So I used bindkey with a select # command to go to that window; followed by 
exec to run the shell command; the last command in the shell
script was a select to return me to the application window.  Joy, it works 
seamlessly as desired.

Useing this approach any number of screen based macros can be developed.
Thanks to all who offered advice.
