NAMEhcd - change working HFS directory
DESCRIPTIONhcd is used to change the notion of the "current working directory" for the current HFS volume. All subsequent HFS commands will interpret filenames relative to this directory, unless absolute pathnames are used.
SEE ALSOhfsutils(1), hpwd(1), hls(1)
BUGSAlthough absolute pathnames can be given to hcd, the full pathname must match the current volume; it cannot specify a path for a different volume. Use hvol or hmount to change the current volume. (Each volume has its own independent current working directory.)
