PUSHD(directory/file-spec) stores the current working directory and changes current directory to the one specified in the string directory-spec. To get back to the stored directory call POPD, see help popd. PUSHD cal also be used to jump to a directory containing a specified file.
PUSHD stores the current directory. Go back to the pushed directory using POPD, see help popd.

PUSHD stores a stack of pushed directories. Calling POPD will pop you one step up the stack.

These two files, PUSHD and POPD are intended to mimic the functions with the same names in UNIX/Linux and DOS.
