    chdir

    Push and pop a stack of directories.

    example

    Hop to /tmp to execute a command and automatically hop back after the callback fires:

    var chdir = require('chdir');
    var spawn = require('child_process').spawn;
    
    chdir('/tmp', function () {
        console.log('cwd[0]=' + process.cwd());
        
        var ps = spawn('git', [
            'clone', 'https://github.com/substack/node-chdir.git'
        ]);
        ps.on('exit', function () {
            console.log('cloned into /tmp/node-chdir');
            console.log('cwd[2]=' + process.cwd());
        });
    });
    
    console.log('cwd[1]=' + process.cwd());
    

    output:

    $ node example/git.js 
    cwd[0]=/tmp
    cwd[1]=/home/substack/projects/node-chdir
    cloned into /tmp/node-chdir
    cwd[2]=/home/substack/projects/node-chdir
