You probably mean pushd and popd?

The former puts a directory on a stack. This top-most element becomes  
now the current working directory. Pushd is in interactive use  
preferred over cd because it does not clear the whole stack but adds  
element after element on top.

The latter pops (or pushes away) the top-most element off the  
directories stack. After a popd command the current working directory  
is changed to the new (elder) top-most element on the stack.

In interactive use 'dirs' lists all the elements on the stack. The  
command 'pushd <number>' puts the n-th element of these on top.  
Similarly 'popd <number>' removes this n-th element without touching  
the top-most one, i.e., without changing the current working  
directory – at least when the number is greater than one!



The human brain operates at only 10% of its capacity. The rest is  
overhead for the operating system.
