CD(1)                       General Commands Manual                      CD(1)



NAME
       cd - change working directory

SYNOPSIS
       cd directory

DESCRIPTION
       Directory  becomes  the  new  working directory.  The process must have
       execute (search) permission in directory.

       Because a new process is created to execute each command, cd  would  be
       ineffective  if  it  were written as a normal command.  It is therefore
       recognized and executed by the Shell.
