NAME
       fcdcmd, fcd - change client's current working directory in the FSP
       database

SYNOPSIS
       fcdcmd path

       fcd path

DESCRIPTION
       If no paths are given, / is used as the current working directory.  If
       path begins with a /, fcdcmd uses it as the current working directory.
       Otherwise, fcdcmd appends path to the end of the current working
       directory.  In both cases, fcdcmd simplifies the new path and writes it
       to the stdout.  In order for the effect of fcdcmd to be felt in
       subsequent FSP transactions, user needs to save the stdout output in
       the FSP_DIR variable.  If the change is successful, fcdcmd will display
       the protection setting of the new working directory.

       fcdcmd will perform csh file name globbing based on file and directory
       information obtained from the FSP database.

       Since user's command shells generally cannot do the proper globbing for
       this program, it is recommended that user defines a shell alias or
       function to turn off command shell globbing before running this
       program.  csh example:

       alias fcd setenv FSP_DIR \`\(set noglob\; exec fcdcmd \!\*\)\`

ENVIRONMENT
       See fsp_env(7) for list of used environment variables.

BUGS
       If more than one path is given, only the first one will be used.  The
       rest will be silently ignored.
