  • File cd-command-with-history.ps1 — part of check-in [9bfa8fdf8d] at 2018-06-10 14:22:43 on branch trunk — I got this script originally from Jim Truher and have tweaked it a bit over time (nothing major). Basically it replaces your CD function with one that keeps a history. (user: unknown size: 2023)
