Getting started with TMUX

I hope Jon Langemak doesn’t feel too bad. I’ve never tried out TMUX before either. He’s been running it through its paces and likes what he sees. After reading his walkthrough, I’ll definitely give it a try as well. If you’re joining Jon and myself in the “Never Heard of TMUX” Club, let me fill you in. TMUX lets you share a terminal session with another user. Perhaps more usefully (at least for me), its a robust terminal session manager, with support for numerous concurrent panes within a given window.

After reading this, I’ll definitely be giving TMUX a spin.

Jon Langemak comments:

This is one of those ‘I must be living under a rock’ things.  I’m not sure how I’ve never heard of TMUX before but it’s really pretty awesome.  I initially came across it when searching for a way to share a terminal session with another user.  It does that quite well but it’s also a great terminal session manager allowing for pane, window, and session management.  Let’s take a look at a quick example to show you what I mean.
