tmux "Terminal Multiplexer" To Be Accessed and Controlled From A Single Terminal

tmux "Terminal Multiplexer" To Be Access and Controlled From A Single Terminal

tmux is a "terminal multiplexer", it enables a number of terminals (or windows) to be accessed and controlled from a single terminal. 

tmux is intended to be a simple, modern, BSD-licensed alternative to programs such as GNU screen.

This release runs on OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Linux, OS X and Solaris.

tmux depends on libevent 2.x. Download it from:

To build tmux from a release tarball, do:

       $ ./configure && make
   $ sudo make install

By default, tmux will use the utempter library to update utmp(5), if it is
installed. Run configure with --disable-utempter to disable this.

To get and build the latest from version control:

       $ git clone
   $ cd tmux
   $ sh
   $ ./configure && make

For more information see Patches should be sent by email to
the mailing list at [email protected].

For documentation on using tmux, see the tmux.1 manpage. It can be viewed from
the source tree with:

$ nroff -mdoc tmux.1|less

Some common questions are answered in the FAQ file, a rough todo list is in the
TODO file and an example configuration in example_tmux.conf.

A vim(1) syntax file is available at:

And a bash(1) completion file at:

For debugging, running tmux with -v or -vv will generate server and client log
files in the current directory.
