it gives you a new prompt. Inside this, i run irssi, a commnd line irc client that i quite like. In irssi, you'll need to type the irc commands yourself, but they're not hard to connect to a server, start irss, and do this:$ screen
to set your nick do this:/connect irc.freenode.net
and to join a channel do this/nick Shiny
you'll see numbers along the bottom of the screen, these are all the window you have open. Alt + number will change window. To escape out of screen, do Ctrl-A Ctrl-D I find it handy to name my screens so i can find them later. Just use the -S flag/join #drupal
and run irssi inside. then later when i want to return to irc i do thisscreen -S irc
screen -r irc
