Autotest [Gnu] Screen

Conceptually very similar to autotest-growl<>, but notify the user via the caption of the parent screen process.


  • autotest >= 4.2.4


Install the gem

gem install autotest-screen

and add the following to ~/.autotest

require 'autotest/screen'


Autotest-screen only works when autotest is invoked from a descendent process of gnu screen. The right pid is searched for via /proc.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.

Notes of Thanks

This project is baesd on Sven Schwyn's excellent autotest-growl.
