PostPosted: Tue 23 Nov 2010, 17:23    Post subject:  WCD - Wherever Change Directory  

Home: http://www.xs4all.nl/~waterlan/
Version: 5.1.4

Quote:
Wcd is a command-line program to change directory fast. It saves time typing at the keyboard. One needs to type only a part of a directory name and wcd will jump to it. Wcd has a fast selection method in case of multiple matches and allows aliasing and banning of directories. Wcd also includes a full screen interactive directory tree browser with speed search.

Wcd was modeled after Norton Change Directory (NCD). NCD appeared first in The Norton Utilities, Release 4, for DOS in 1987, published by Peter Norton. NCD was written by Brad Kingsbury.

wcd in PUPPY
Quote:
1. Download & install the wcd pet-package. You've allready done this.
2. Open $HOME/.bashrc and paste the following part to the end. Save afterwards.

wcd (){
/usr/bin/wcd.exe "$@"
. $HOME/bin/wcd.go
}

3. run wcd-update once to create needed files.
4. To have an up-to-date directory-database you should add

wcd-update &

to /etc/rc.d/rc.local , or make a run-script in $HOME/Startup with the
following content:

#!/bin/sh
wcd-update &
exit

5. NOTES
a) If you want to check/edit the dirs that are indexed look at
/usr/bin/wcd-update

USAGE
Quote:
Examples of wcd usage:

wcd Desk

will change to directory /home/waterlan/Desktop

But also

wcd *top

will do that.


Compiled and tested in 4.3.1.
