CD(1)                      Commands and Applications                     CD(1)




NAME

       cd - change working directory (gsh builtin)


SYNOPSIS

       cd [ directory ]


DESCRIPTION

       directory  becomes  the  new  working directory.  If cd is used without
       arguments, it returns you to your $HOME 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.


SEE ALSO

       pwd(1)
