Use shortcuts for your directories
For all the console cowboys who are tired of permanent entering of
directory names whose length resembles rather a highway.
xcd -a <name> adds the current directory to the list of aliases as
xcd <name> go to directory known as
name, if not exists fall back to
xcd lists the aliases
Removing or editing aliases can be done by editing /etc/xcd.list where they are stored by default.
xcd.c - C source
xcd - Linux ELF binary
xcd.sh - function definition for /etc/profile.d
Download xcd.c and compile xcd, or download xcd binary, and put it to /usr/bin/.
Download xcd.sh and put it to /etc/profile.d/ (at least in Red Hat, not sure if
other distros have it there too). Logout. Log in. "set" should now show "xcd"
defined as a command variable. Your shell should now accept it too.
