CDargs Brings Bookmarks to the Linux Command Line

"Reducing keystrokes isn't the only path to productivity, but it certainly helps. If you find yourself visiting the same directories on your system (or systems) every day, save yourself some time and bookmark your most frequently used directories with CDargs.

"Even with tab completion, moving around the filesystem at the command line can get tedious. For instance, I use Dropbox to store all my work files, and organize my files by client or project. So, for example, I keep my Linux.com stories under Dropbox/Documents/Stories/Linux.com and my invoices under Dropbox/Documents/Invoices. I could type cd ~/Dropbox/Documents/Stories/Linux.com every time, or create a symlink or alias that would be shorter, or just install cdargs and make life easier."
