puhsd, popd implementation


Hi Everyone!

I need to do my own implementation of the pushd and popd commands using a shell script. I'm trying to implement the directory stack using a text file. My current "mypushd" basically just copies the argument given by the user into a text file. However, say the user does

mypushd .

In this case, I want the current directory to be copied to the text file, not the character ".". Any suggestions on how to do this?

Thank you.

echo $PWD >> mytextfile

will append the present working directory (pwd) to the end of the text file.

echo $PWD > mytextfile will overwrite the file so that the only thing in the file will be the pwd.
