Even better: use pushd/popd to change dirs. You should already have
'-' as an alias for popd. And I have '+' aliased to pushd. And
neither aliases are in my ~/.alias. AFAIK, both are standard on SUSE
and not some of my homespun stuff ;) And that's on a ex-SUSE 6.2! And
I've not noticed it not working on the 11.2 on the new box.

So, you can use '+ SOME_PATH' / '-' to navigate ;)

Try shorten that, buster! ;P

HTH,
-dnh, who actually doesn't use pushd/popd much, but 'cd SOME_PATH' /
'cd -'. On purpose, just because I don't much work that way, not
because I don't like it. Usually, I just open a new xterm anyway
for a task (who cares about one more, if you already have 10
running anyway? ;)


I like the '-', but I still haven't figured out the '+'. I mean I've
confirmed
what it does and how it works:

david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ dirs -v
0 /var/log
1 ~
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ +
/var/log /var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ cd /usr/share/ssl/misc/
david@alchemy[]: /usr/share/ssl/misc (0)$ +
/usr/share/ssl/misc /usr/share/ssl/misc /var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /usr/share/ssl/misc (0)$ -
/usr/share/ssl/misc /var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /usr/share/ssl/misc (0)$ -
/var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ +
/var/log /var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ cd
david@alchemy[]: ~ (0)$ -
/var/log ~
david@alchemy[]: /var/log (0)$ cd
david@alchemy[]: ~ (0)$ dirs -v
0 ~
1 ~
david@alchemy[]: ~ (0)$ -
~
david@alchemy[]: ~ (0)$

But remembering to pushd '+' any directory I need to come back to, seem
like
something that I would forget to do a lot ;-)
