CDargs is a tool which enhances the navigation of the common unix file-system
inside the shell. It plugs into the shell built-in cd-command (via a shell
function or an  alias) and adds bookmarks and a browser to it.
It enables you to move to a very distant place in the file-system with just a
few keystrokes.
