Quit screen on german keyboard

On a german keyboard the key binding for 'quit' on GNU screen does not seem to work for me (on Max OS X). But one can simply invoke the quite command directly through the command mode:

  • Ctrl-A : quit

Save screen scrollback buffer to file


  • Ctrl-A : hardcopy -h file.txt

For me this saves a lot of leading blank lines, but this is ok.
