I want to use bash's
CDPATH to point to a directory of symlinks to directories that I access frequently. However, doing:
cd SUBDIR to stop working if
~/symlinks/SUBDIR both exist;
CDPATH directories take precedence over the current working directory.
I tried to fix this by instead using:
and that does fix the precedence problem, but now
cding to a subdirectory always prints its full path:
$ pwd /foo/bar $ cd baz /foo/bar/baz
This is a bit annoying. I know that I can suppress all
cd output by doing
alias cd='> /dev/null cd', but I do like the path being printed for other
CDPATH entries (or when doing
cd -). Is there anything better that I can do?
