    How to read text that scrolled off the screen in GNU screen


    I've just dicovered GNU screen, a program that allows you to setup multiple terminals, from which you can detach and re-attach, so that you can have programs running in a session to a remote server and then log off from that server while the programs keep running! Great for over night copying jobs on my file server.

    Sometimes the output of a command is rather long and the text scrolls off the screen. How do i scroll up to read the output? Shift + page up doesn't work...

    Any ideas?
