cd

Change the current directory.  F7

The cd command prompts for the name of a directory, then sets Epsilon's current directory. If you press Alt-E when prompted for the directory name, Epsilon will type in the name of the directory portion of the current file name.

When Epsilon displays a file name (for example, in a buffer's mode line), it usually describes the file relative to this current directory.

Epsilon uses its notion of the current directory when it prompts for a file name and the current buffer has no specific directory associated with it. (This typically happens when the buffer has no associated file name.)

Also, if you remove any pre-typed directory name and type a relative pathname to such a command, Epsilon will interpret what you type relative to the directory set by the cd command.

See the prompt-with-buffer-directory variable for more information.
