I would also appreciate an introduction to tmux, but I should note that I'm
not living in Toronto (I'm just subscribed to this mailing list). My problem
is that I'm not sure I understand tmux's program model and how buffers,
windows, sessions, viewports and whatever else it supports related to each
other, and how they are implemented behind the scenes. For example, I
recall that I once wanted to write the output captured by a shell's session's
history to a file, and had to research and execute several commands to do
so (successfully, IIRC), but I can no longer reproduce it.

So an introduction to tmux's program model and how to make your mental
model of tmux to match would be appreciated. I've been toying with the
idea of properly researching that and preparing a small article or E-book
about it, but I didn't get to it and would be happy if someone else with a
better understanding of tmux than I have will do it.
