] Does screen work well with graphical applications? I know it is a very
] good app for text based applications such as vim. But what if I use
] gvim/texmacs for most of the editing?
screen is text-based, so no, it won't help with graphical applications.
For graphical (read: X Window System) apps, you /can/ use vnc or tight-
vnc in concert with ssh, however, in order to achieve the same kind of
persistence across a dead connection.
