:popd

Arguments:

This command and the related :cd and :pushd work just like their Unix C shell counterparts. :popd pops the current directory off the directory stack and changes the current directory to the directory that was next on that stack. :cd changes the current directory to its argument dir (if supplied) or to the user's home directory (if dir is not supplied). On Windows, the home directory is taken to be C:\. :pushd changes the current directory to its argument dir and adds it to the directory stack. If no argument is supplied, :pushd changes to the directory at the top of the directory stack and swaps the top two directories on the stack.

:cd, :popd, and :pushd all change the value of *default-pathname-defaults* so that its directory component is the new current directory.

See also chdir (which is like :cd but does not change the value of *default-pathname-defaults*) and current-directory.

See also :dirs, which prints the stack of directories and :pwd, which prints the full path of the current directory.

:popd has no abbreviation.
