autojump provides a faster way to navigate your filesystem, with a
"cd command that learns".
It works by maintaining a database of the directories you use the most from
the command line, and allows you to "jump" to frequently used directories by
typing only a small pattern.
To use autojump, you need to configure your shell to source
/usr/share/autojump/ on startup.
