Projects / JDirt


DIRT is a simple directory stack utility that lets the user use the same directory stack across terminals and sessions. The stack of directories is stored in a file (.dirtpile) in your home directory. All shell sessions access the same file, and thus, all of them use the same stack. DIRT supports jumping to specific entries, push, pop, swap the CWD with the top of the stack, and jump to the top of the stack. A set of CSH shell aliases are also included, and required for proper functioning.
