Following is my shell script.

echo $view

echo $objfld
echo "cleartool setview $view"
cleartool setview $view;
cd `cd /vob/ios/sys`;

In this "cd" is not working and not getting any error.

my shell is "tcsh"

what are you expecting that to do?

"cd /vob/ios/sys" will execute in a child process and print nothing if successful.

cd with nothing will move to your home directory.
