Something simple, I think...

Hello to all,

I have a very simple script that Ii run to CD into a specific directory. When I run it without a dot notation or shell notation (as a subshell, therefore), the script does not actually change the directory. But how do I avoid using the dot or shell notation and still be able to run this short script in its own process so the directory change does occur?

Thanks,

David

Disregard my post...

I just remembered what i used--aliases in my ".kshrc" file and not scripts.
Sorry for the wasted forum space.
