Change Directory - change the current working directory to a specific Folder.

SYNTAX 
      cd [-LP] [directory]

OPTIONS
    -P  : Do not follow symbolic links
    -L  : Follow symbolic links (default)
If directory is not given, the value of the HOME shell variable is used.

If the shell variable CDPATH exists, it is used as a search path.
If directory begins with a slash, CDPATH is not used.

If directory is `-', this will change to the previous directory location (equivalent to $OLDPWD ).

The return status is zero if the directory is successfully changed, non-zero otherwise.
