To quit screen you need to hit ctrl+a, ctrl+\. How do you do that if you don't have \ on the keyboard?

On my keyboard I need to hit shift+alt+7 to get a backslash - if I'm in an editor. Won't work for screen of course.


One solution I meanwhile found was to create ~/.screenrc and add bind q quit to it. This allows me to quit by typing ctrl+a, q.
