I'm just learning tmux and I have no experience with screen. I'm wondering if I can move a window in one tmux client to another tmux client. I want to move my IRC client to a new window on my screen.
Yes, you can use the move-window command:
move-window [-d] [-s src-window] [-t dst-window] (alias: movew)
This is similar to link-window, except the window at src-window is moved to dst-window.
where src-window and dst-window have the form: session:window.pane (session and window can be either name or id).
So, supposing you have an 'chat' session with an 'irc' window and want to move it to the 'other_session' session you can do (in the tmux prompt):
move-window -s chat:irc -t other_session
If you are already in the chat:irc window you don't need to specify the source so
move-window -t other_session:
will do it.
In the same way, from the 'other_session' session you don't need to specify the target.
movew -d irc:irc_window
If you haven't named you windows/sessions, you have to use their ids.
