I'm looking to switch from screen to tmux for my terminal multiplexing needs, but there's a feature of screen that I need to replicate in tmux: the -X option, which allows one to run arbitrary screen commands inside an existing screen session.
Hi,As a i3 user, I do not really use tmux or urxvt-tabbed anymore to manage my tabs.But I really miss the fact that tmux open a new shell on the same directory as the previous one.To emulate this feature, I wrote a simple C program which print the current working directory of the focused window so you can do things like that:urxvt -cd `xcwd`There is no proper way to get the working directory of a

more than one user at the same time.
