How to search any word in linux screen

0 votes

I am going screen logs of devstack with 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 in screens?

from man screen I found

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

but screens do not support vi-like forward search.
