General Development "It is sometimes hard to form a mental model of a directory tree when working with the command line. GUI shells tend to provide more visual cues. So, like a lot of Bash users, I used to get around this by printing the current working directory in my shell prompt. However, things can get pretty cramped when dealing with deeply nested directories. A better solution is needed."

Cramping my style? It's a tool.

Next thing you know, these Mac people will want aesthetic hammers.

I started at the command prompt, and I'll probably end at it. Now get off my lawn!
