I know what I can make a shell procedure or source the script instead of running it to
cd the shell I am using. What I want to know is there any way to
cd the "parent shell" (not sure if that is the correct phrase).
#!/bin/sh # This is script.sh cd $1 pwd
Here's some output. (Note: this isn't the exact output, I just shortened it by stripping out unnecessary details. Lines that are my input into the shell begin with
> mkdir foo > ./script.sh foo /home/myName/foo > pwd /home/myName
This is expected behavior as I understand. Here is if I "source" the script.
> . ./script.sh foo /home/myName/foo > pwd /home/myName/foo
Without sourcing the script and without making this a shell procedure, is there any way to type
./script.sh foo result in the shell I am using be in the directory
