i think it's very useful if we can define log file name and also flush time to write in log as an option in screen command
this feature supported only in setting file right now
but because screen write output log in screenlog.0 and if i run two screen in same path both log writes on screenlog.0 then it's very useful if we can define log file path when i start screen session. something like:

screen -o "log file path" --flush 2

instead of put this setting in separated files and use -c for each screen session to have different log name
