cd(1)                                fish                                cd(1)



NAME
       cd - change directory

   Synopsis
       cd [DIRECTORY]

   Description
       cd changes the current working directory.

       If DIRECTORY is supplied, it will become the new directory. If no
       parameter is given, the contents of the HOME environment variable will
       be used.

       If DIRECTORY is a relative path, the paths found in the CDPATH
       environment variable array will be tried as prefixes for the specified
       path.

       Note that the shell will attempt to change directory without requiring
       cd if the name of a directory is provided (starting with ., / or ~, or
       ending with /).

       Fish also ships a wrapper function around the builtin cd that
       understands cd - as changing to the previous directory. See also prevd.
       This wrapper function maintains a history of the 25 most recently
       visited directories in the $dirprev and $dirnext global variables. If
       you make those universal variables your cd history is shared among all
       fish instances.

       As a special case, cd . is equivalent to cd $PWD, which is useful in
       cases where a mountpoint has been recycled or a directory has been
       removed and recreated.

   Examples
       cd
         changes the working directory to your home directory.

       cd /usr/src/fish-shell
         changes the working directory to /usr/src/fish-shell
