Abstract

One of the weaknesses in the command prompt change directory (CD) command is that it does not easily allow a way of using the filename one is looking for to determine the directory to change to. The user must perform an awkward sequence of DIR and CD commands with considerable retyping, or copy-paste, to achieve the effect. This article proposes a simple command and a written solution to changing the current directory based on a filename.
