Project Description

A light-weight library for easy interaction between Python and GNU screen.

import pyscreen

#Start a new session and give it something to do
session = pyscreen.ScreenSession('myName')
session.send_command('echo hello')

#Kill a screen session with a particular name
session = pyscreen.get_session_with_name('testSession')

#Print all the id of all sessions
for session in pyscreen.get_all_sessions():
