       byobu-select-session - select and connect to a byobu session

       byobu-select-session  is	an application that lists the available	screen
       sessions	running	on the system, and prompts the	user  to  select  one.
       The  user  also has the option to create	a new Byobu session, or	launch
       the default shell without Byobu.

       If an invalid selection is chosen 3 times in a row, the	user  is  con-
       nected to the youngest session.

       By  default,  if	only one session exists, the user is connected to that
       session,	and if no sessions exist, a new	session	 is  created  --  such
       that  there  is no interactive prompt in	the normal behavior.  However,
       some users may choose to	always be prompted, by touching	the file  $BY-

       Note that BYOBU_CONFIG_DIR=$HOME/.byobu.

       Named  sessions	that  begin  with  a  "."  are "hidden"	from byobu-se-
       lect-session(1).	 This is useful, for instance, if you do  not  want  a
       session to be automatically selected at login.  Example:
	 byobu -S .hidden
