       abduco - terminal session manager


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

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

       By default all session related information is stored in $HOME/.abduco with $TMPDIR/.abduco
       as a fallback and /tmp/.abduco as a last resort.

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

       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.

       -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.


       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
