CHDIR(I)                     5/15/74                     CHDIR(I)



NAME
     chdir - change working directory

SYNOPSIS
     chdir 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,
     chdir  would  be  ineffective if it were written as a normal
     command.  It is therefore recognized  and  executed  by  the
     Shell.

SEE ALSO
     sh(I), pwd(I)
