NAME
       cd - change working directory

SYNOPSIS
       cd directory

DESCRIPTION
       Directory  becomes the new working directory.  The process must have execute (search) per-
       mission in directory.

       Because a new process is created to execute each command, cd would be  ineffective  if  it
       were  written as a normal command.  It is therefore recognized and executed by the shells.
       In csh(1) you may specify a list of directories in which directory is to be  sought  as	a
       subdirectory  if it is not a subdirectory of the current directory; see the description of
       the cdpath variable in csh(1).
