   Yes, it can. Typically "^AH" will toggle logging for a particular
screen. "^A:logfile filename" will set the log file location, which
defaults to "screenlog.%n" in the directory where the screen session
was started.

   You can have multiple connections to a single screen session,
or you can detach/reattach a terminal. Screen is your friend.
Really.  I can just about get work done without X if I have screen
handy. I'm always wishing for new and useful features only to find
that the latest version has them already. Try it. You'll like it.
