I’ve already mention screen before and I’ve been using it for a while. If you don’t know what screen is you should really google it, it’s a great tool for terminal lovers.
I think OSX comes with screen by default since the last major upgrade to the terminal app. The problem with it is that it doesn’t allow vertical split, only horizontal.
I searched in ports for something like screen-vs but I couldn’t find anything. So I started looking for a manual installation and I got it, here it is:
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/sources/screen co screen $ curl http://old.evanmeagher.net/files/gnu-screen-vertsplit.patch > gnu-screen-vertsplit.patch $ cd screen/src $ patch < ../../gnu-screen-vertsplit.patch $ ./configure --enable-locale --enable-telnet --enable-colors256 --enable-rxct_osc $ make $ sudo make install
|After the installation you can hit __C-a||__ or run split -v in command line mode.|
