Thanx :)

The "cd .." will take you to the parent drawer,
and using "cd ../" will traverse into a ".." directory.

Cool, "cd .." might be useful. Well, for the people who are used to it.

Does it override any previously existing ".." directory you might have? I.E If you have a ".." directory, can you "cd .." to traverse into it, or will it still go to the parent directory?

Marco, thanks for "cd .." stuff :)

Thanks :)

@MickJT & kas1e
Why "cd.." but not "cd .."? Well, both are possible in the Windows world and the former is quicker to type, where as the latter works in Linux, IRC. Dunno about in Mac...

Maybe I'll check into the "cd .." as well in the future... :)

handy little script..thanks Marko :-)

I am with you. Only "cd .." (with space beetwen) make sense, but not cd.., which looks a bit unlogical and like one command. Not cd, and not path, but just "cd.." :)

Will be good to have exactly "cd .." (if it possible for you of course).

I don't know of anyone that used or uses "cd..", only "cd .."

Yapp, I know the script is trivial and the comments are way bigger than the script itself (excluding the installs) ;)

Nevertheless cd.. is nice to have, I think :)

I also need to have cd.. since days of msdos. But I never made a script for it, I just put "Alias cd.. cd /" (without ") in s:shell-startup.
Comment by: AmigaOneProductions ( 09 May 2010, 20:22File version: 1.1
Why type cd.. which is 4 keypresses, when you can just type one i.e. "/"
The word CD is not required in AmigaDOS.

Of course you could make your cd.. script just one byte long by just having a "/" in it for the same reason (if you removed the comments).

Nice trick though :-)
