Jumping Around Using z

Navigating a large file system can be cumbersome and often you go to the same directories, so you need z

Install z

After a short learning phase, z will take you to the most ‘frecent’ directory that matches ALL of the regexes given on the command line, in order.

Now you can jump around - if I want to go to my TIL repository, which I do quite often, I can just do:

z til

You can list your jumping points:

-l     list only

And you can remove a directory:

-x     remove the current directory from the datafile
