ABDUCO(1)		    General Commands Manual		     ABDUCO(1)

       abduco -	terminal session manager

       abduco [-e detachkey] [-r] [-f] -c name command [args ...]
       abduco [-e detachkey] [-r] [-f] -n name command [args ...]
       abduco [-e detachkey] [-r] [-f] [-l] -A name command [args ...]
       abduco [-e detachkey] [-r] [-l] -a name

       abduco  provides	 a  way	 to  disconnect	 a  given application from its
       controlling  terminal,  thus  it	 provides  roughly  the	 same  session
       attach/detach support as	screen(1), tmux(1) or dtach(1).

       If  the	command	 to execute is not specified, the environment variable
       $ABDUCO_CMD is examined,	if it is not set dvtm(1) is executed.

       All session related information is stored in the	following  directories
       (first to succeed is used):


       However	if  a  given  session  name  represents	 either	 a relative or
       absolute	path it	is used	unmodified.

       If for some reason the unix(7) domain socket representing a session  is
       deleted,	sending	SIGUSR1	to the server process will recreate it.

       If  no  command	line arguments are given all currently active sessions
       are printed sorted by their respective creation	date.  Lines  starting
       with  an	 asterik  * indicate that at least one client is connected.  A
       plus sign + indicates that the command terminated while no  client  was
       connected, attach to get	its exit status.

       -v     Print version information	to standard output and exit.

       -r     Readonly session,	i.e. user input	is ignored.

       -e detachkey
	      Set  the key to detach which by default is set to	CTRL+\ i.e. ^\
	      to detachkey.

       -f     Force creation of	session	when there is  an  already  terminated
	      session of the same name,	after showing its exit status.

       -c     Create a new session and attach immediately to it.

       -n     Create a new session but do not attach to	it.

       -A     Try  to connect to an existing session, upon failure create said
	      session and attach immediately to	it.

       -a     Attach to	an existing session.

       -l     Attach with the lowest priority, meaning this client will	be the
	      last to control the size.

       Start a new session (assuming dvtm(1) is	in $PATH) with

       abduco -c my-session

       do some work, then detach by pressing CTRL+\ and	later reattach with

       abduco -a my-session
