Vim's `lcd` command Tue, 04 Jun 2013
In Vim you can use
:cd to change directory across your Vim session. But did you know you can use
lcd to change directory for the current window?
I find this useful if I’m in one project and need to dig into some code from another. I will open a new tab and then
lcd into place. Once I’m done I can then delete that tab and in my other window(s) I’m still in the directory I was earlier.
:help lcd for more.
