How to search any word in linux screen

0 votes

I am going to screen logs of devstack with the following command. screen -x stack I find searching in screens very difficult. Currently I start copy mode with Ctrl-A Esc and read all the logs, sometimes it is very irritating to go through all logs while searching for a single word.

Is there a good way for searching a word on screens?

From the man screen, I found

Searching: / Vi-like search forward. ? Vi-like search backwards. C-a s Emacs style incremental search forward. C-r Emacs style reverse i-search.

But screens do not support vi-like forward search.
