Once you have some entries in your directory stack, jump between them at ease with "cd ~x", where x is the position of the desired directory in the stack. "dirs -v" will even number the stack entries for you, if you can't be bothered counting through them. Notice the current directory changing in my shell prompts below.
[ian@lyekka]~% pushd /var/log /var/log ~ [ian@lyekka]/var/log% pushd /tmp /tmp /var/log ~ [ian@lyekka]/tmp% pushd /usr/local/bin /usr/local/bin /tmp /var/log ~ [ian@lyekka]/usr/local/bin% dirs -v 0 /usr/local/bin 1 /tmp 2 /var/log 3 ~ [ian@lyekka]/usr/local/bin% cd ~2 [ian@lyekka]/var/log% cd ~1 [ian@lyekka]/tmp%You can, of course, also just popd back to the previous directory on the stack. See your shell manual for more information on these commands.
