cd tilde

[prev][up][next]
cd tilde /C-D til-d*/ /vi./ To go home. From the Unix C-shell and Korn-shell command `cd ~', which takes one to one's `$HOME' (`cd' with no arguments happens to do the same thing). By extension, may be used with other arguments; thus, over an electronic chat link, `cd ~coffee' would mean "I'm going to the coffee machine."
