     cd — change working directory

     cd directory

     Directory is an absolute or relative pathname which becomes the new work‐
     ing directory.  The interpretation of a relative pathname by cd depends
     on the CDPATH environment variable (see below).

     The following environment variables affect the execution of cd:

     CDPATH  If the directory operand does not begin with a slash (/) charac‐
	     ter, and the first component is not dot (.) or dot-dot (..), cd
	     searches for the directory relative to each directory named in
	     the CDPATH variable, in the order listed.	The new working direc‐
	     tory is set to the first matching directory found.	 An empty
	     string in place of a directory pathname represents the current
	     directory.	 If the new working directory was derived from CDPATH,
	     it will be printed to the standard output.

     HOME    If cd is invoked without arguments and the HOME environment vari‐
	     able exists and contains a directory name, that directory becomes
	     the new working directory.

     See csh(1) for more information on environment variables.

     The cd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     csh(1), pwd(1), sh(1), chdir(2)

     The cd command is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (“POSIX.2”) compatible.
