work area directory jumping script?

hi all,

Ive been trying to find some way of doing this for ages but i have is a shell script that activates a python search and there it no tab completion. more familliar with tcsh at the moment but i'm a newbe.

i was trying to make an easy way to browse to a list of working directories.

say i had the following folder /work/template/clothing/.

now in this folder i have say folders named
shirt
pants
shoes
hat
tie
so the ties full path would be /work/template/clothing/tie

what i want to do is to have some way of jumping to the different dir paths with one command

eg "work" being the script command and the first argument being which folder.

so in the shell type "work pants"

should get me to /work/template/clothing/pants

i can set up separate cdpath command but i have lot of directories and it would be nice to have a TAB completion.

surely this is a common script. is there one out there i can look at.

any ideas would be great. i dont know what this would be called to do the apopriate search

cheers

john

NAME
renpy - engine for creating visual novels SYNOPSIS
renpy [path to the script directory] DESCRIPTION
Ren'Py is a programming language and runtime, intended to ease the creation of visual-novel type games. It contains features that make it easy to display thoughts, dialogue, and menus; to display images to the user; to write game logic; and to support the saving and loading of games. Ren'Py tries to be like an executable script, allowing you to get a working game without much more effort than is required to type the game script into the computer. Ren'Py is implemented on top of python, and that python heritage shows through in many places. Many Ren'Py statements allow python expres- sions to be used, and there are also Ren'Py statements that allow for the execution of arbitrary python code. Many of the less-used fea- tures of Ren'Py are exposed to the user by way of python. By only requiring use of the simplest features of python, it's hoped that Ren'Py will be usable by all game authors. USAGE
If you run the program without any arguments, zou will get an interactive launcher from where you can select, run and work different projects. For running a script, you need to give the full path to the directory that contains the game you want to play. For example: renpy /usr/share/games/renpy/demo/ To learn how to use the game interface, you should install and play renpy-demo. FILES
The game data for each user is stored at ~/.renpy/ directory. The scripts can be installed in the system bz placing them under /usr/share/games/renpy/ , but you can run any script in an arbitrarz directory just by telling the path as the parameter to the game. SEE ALSO
