Forget the 'cd' command !!!

Posted 12-15-2010 at 05:58 AM by thasuresh

Autocd:

$ shopt -s autocd

It's a Auto Directory changing command. We can change into any
directory without the use of 'cd' command.So we can utilize the time
of typing "cd" command.


thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ shopt -s autocd
thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ Desktop/
cd Desktop/
thasu@tha-admin-da ~/Desktop $ cd
thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ /var/log/cups/
cd /var/log/cups/
thasu@tha-admin-da /var/log/cups $

To reside the above option as a permanent one, edit the .bashrc file
and add this line "shopt -s autocd" into it.

Enjoy
