I've been using GNU Screen for some time and have become accustomed to the following workflow, where I will:
- Split a region into two windows (
- Open new shells up in these two windows and cycle through them as needed (
C-a n, etc).
This workflow means I can keep the window split vertically and have documentation open in the left pane, and cycle through various other shells (with other commands running) in the right pane without disturbing the left. I can't seem to do this in tmux.
In tmux I can obvious split a window into panes in a similar fashion, but I don't seem to be able to open new shells in each pane and cycle through them like I can in GNU Screen. Is this a deficiency of tmux, or have I just missed the relevant command in the man page?
