cd -- change working directory
Directory is an absolute or relative pathname which becomes the new working directory. The
interpretation of a relative pathname by cd depends on the CDPATH environment variable (see
The following environment variables affect the execution of cd:
CDPATH If the directory operand does not begin with a slash (/) character, and the first
component is not dot (.) or dot-dot (..), cd searches for the directory relative to
each directory named in the CDPATH variable, in the order listed. The new working
directory is set to the first matching directory found. An empty string in place of
a directory pathname represents the current directory. If the new working directory
was derived from CDPATH, it will be printed to the standard output.
HOME If cd is invoked without arguments and the HOME environment variable exists and con-
tains a directory name, that directory becomes the new working directory.
See csh(1) for more information on environment variables.
The cd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
csh(1), pwd(1), sh(1), chdir(2)
The cd command is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible.
