    Command:

    chdir

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <unistd.h>
    
           int chdir(const char *path);
           int fchdir(int fd);
    
       Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
    
           fchdir():
               _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 ||
               _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
               || /* Since glibc 2.12: */ _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           chdir() changes the current working directory of the calling process to
           the directory specified in path.
    
           fchdir()  is  identical  to  chdir();  the  only difference is that the
           directory is given as an open file descriptor.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and  errno  is
           set appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           Depending  on  the  filesystem, other errors can be returned.  The more
           general errors for chdir() are listed below:
    
           EACCES Search permission is denied for one of the components  of  path.
                  (See also path_resolution(7).)
    
           EFAULT path points outside your accessible address space.
    
           EIO    An I/O error occurred.
    
           ELOOP  Too many symbolic links were encountered in resolving path.
    
           ENAMETOOLONG
                  path is too long.
    
           ENOENT The file does not exist.
    
           ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory was available.
    
           ENOTDIR
                  A component of path is not a directory.
    
           The general errors for fchdir() are listed below:
    
           EACCES Search permission was denied on the directory open on fd.
    
           EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.
