CHDIR (I)                    3/15/72                    CHDIR (I)

NAME            chdir -- change working directory

SYNOPSIS        chdir directory

DESCRIPTION     directory becomes the new working directory.

                Because a new process is created to execute each

                command, chdir would be ineffective if it were

                written as a normal command.  It is therefore

                recognized and executed by the Shell.

FILES           --

SEE ALSO        sh(I)

DIAGNOSTICS     "Bad directory" if the directory cannot be

                changed to.
