       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 connected to the youngest

       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 $BYOBU_CONFIG_DIR/.always-select.

       Note that BYOBU_CONFIG_DIR=$HOME/.byobu.

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