The program xd is a program smart directory changer. It allows you to change
to a directory specifying only its initial characters or a subset of the
initial characters allowing commands like 'xd ulb' to do a 'chdir
xd can be used in combination with the standard tab-filename completion as
offered by most shells. But as xd is very easy to use, one is quickly
addicted to xd when changing to directories that are not close to the current
working directory. Small changes required thereafter are in practice always
performed using the facilities offered by the command shell.
When multiple expansions are available xd offers a list of alternatives from
which the user may select an option by simply pressing an associated
key. Directories that are never selected by the user may be ignored using
directives in xd's configuration file.
