20.13 Printcmd

— Command: printcmd [cmd]

(none)
If cmd is not an empty string, screen will not use the terminal capabilities po/pf for printing if it detects an ansi print sequence ESC [ 5 i, but pipe the output into cmd. This should normally be a command like ‘lpr’ or ‘cat > /tmp/scrprint’. Printcmd without an argument displays the current setting. The ansi sequence ESC \ ends printing and closes the pipe.

Warning: Be careful with this command! If other user have write access to your terminal, they will be able to fire off print commands.
