SWAPCD Internal
Purpose: Interchange the current directory and a stacked directory.
Format: SWAPCD [<directory | pattern>>] [LEVEL <number>]
Template: DIR, LEVEL/N
Path: Internal
SWAPCD interchanges the current directory with one of the directories saved by the PUSHCD command.

If an optional <directory name> or <pattern> is provided, it will be exchanged with the most recently saved directory instead.

By default, the most recently saved directory will be exchanged with the current directory. To pick any other directory from the stack, use the LEVEL <number> argument; LEVEL 1 will choose the most recently used stack element, LEVEL=2 the one which precedes the most recently used stack element and so forth.

If there is no directory on the stack, SWAPCD will pop the directory SYS: instead.


3.OS4:> CD Work:Examples
3.Work:Examples> PUSHCD Ram:
3.RAM Disk:> POPCD
illustrates how the current directory can be pushed onto the stack before changing to a new directory, and then the previous directory can be popped from the stack later.

See also: CD, POPCD, PUSHCD.
