8.5 Session Name

— Command: sessionname [name]

Rename the current session. Note that for screen -list the name shows up with the process-id prepended. If the argument name is omitted, the name of this session is displayed.
Caution: The $STY environment variable still reflects the old name. This may result in confusion. The default is constructed from the tty and host names.
