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)
