Start a new command in a new screen window

alias s='screen -X screen'; s top; s vi; s man ls;
If you are already running screen then you often want to start a command in a fresh window. You use this alias by typing 's whatever' from your command line and 'whatever' starts running in a new window. Good with interactive commands like info, vim, and nethack.
