. . . or my personal favorite terminal multiplexer, tmux:


From the pkg-descr file:

        Tmux is a terminal multiplexer, it enables a number of terminals to be accessed
        and controlled from a single terminal. tmux is intended to be a simple, modern,
        BSD-licensed alternative to programs such as GNU screen.
