Its own manual:

Temporarily switching to the builtin command line: C-a :.

Concepts, approaches, …:

  • persistent shell session
  • regions — displaying more than one window at a time, splitting horizontally or vertically (i.e. screen tiling / splitting), resizing the visible regions, …
  • scrolling — the usual scrolling is not available per se — #ToBeClarified — I am not 100% sure how scrolling within screen is meant to be done, but it does not feel well and reasonably usable (what a pity! K.O.!!!)
