I have pushd several pathnames, so my dirs stack has multiple stack frames.

Now I would like to empty the stack, without changing my current directory. I wonder how to do that? Thanks.

  • Read the man page, or help dirs. – Isaac Jan 16 '18 at 11:51

Since dirs is a builtin, you can get help for it by running help dirs.

Doing so will inform you about the -c option, which clears your directory stack.

dirs -c

For bash:

dirs -c

$ pushd Devel/
~/Devel ~
$ dirs -c
$ dirs
$ pwd
