Unix Tip #4243- September 23, 2012

SIMPLE MASK OVERLOOKED


Another way to CD to the long directory.

Works in both csh and ksh

cd too*

Will change to the directory "toobigtotype"
As long as there is only one ocurrance
of the word too....

This is great when there is only
one sub directory within a directory,
just use:

cd *
