Changing The Current Working Directory

To change your working directory (where we are standing in our tree-shaped maze) we use the cd command. To do this, type cd followed by the pathname of the desired work- ing directory.

Pathnames can be specified in one of two different ways; as absolute pathnames or as relative pathnames. Let's deal with absolute pathnames first.
