PostPosted: Tue 23 Nov 2010, 17:23    Post_subject:  WCD - Wherever Change Directory  

Home: http://www.xs4all.nl/~waterlan/
Version: 5.1.4

Wcd is a command-line program to change directory fast. It saves time typing at the keyboard. One needs to type only a part of a directory name and wcd will jump to it. Wcd has a fast selection method in case of multiple matches and allows aliasing and banning of directories. Wcd also includes a full screen interactive directory tree browser with speed search.

Wcd was modeled after Norton Change Directory (NCD). NCD appeared first in The Norton Utilities, Release 4, for DOS in 1987, published by Peter Norton. NCD was written by Brad Kingsbury.

wcd (){

3. run wcd-update once to create needed files.
4. To have an up-to-date directory-database you should add

Examples of wcd usage:
