Well this is the deal:
i am in screen #1 and i wish to send a command to screen #2.

The thing is that using screen -x i can have 2 terminals open and monitor 2 screens. I wish to be able to control both screens from either of them.
So if i have two windows open on my desktop, and i work in a window with screen #1, i wish to be able to send commands to a screen #2 that is open in another window on my desktop.

I need this to have several automated processes, for example: feed in screen #1 triggers events in screen #2.

SCREEN-IR(1)							   Axel Beckert 						      SCREEN-IR(1)

screen-ir -- Interactively Reattach to GNU Screen sessions SYNOPSIS
screen-ir [additional screen options ...] DESCRIPTION
screen-ir uses iSelect(1) to interactively reattach to running screen sessions. Use the screen option -d or -D if you want to reattach to attached screen sessions. Use the screen option -x if you want to attach to screen sessions without detaching them. FILES
screen-ir sources ~/.screen-irrc if it exists. It recognizes two variables: The contents of SCREEN_OPTIONS is given to screen(1) as command-line options. Default is -r. Use e.g. -rd if you always want to reattach to already attached screen sessions. The contents of ISELECT_OPTIONS is given to iselect(1) as command-line options. Default is empty. Use e.g. -f if you always want to see the interactive selection, even if there's only one screen session running, i.e. you have no choice. AUTHOR
