kcd is a directory change utility similar to NCD. It helps you navigate the directory tree. You can also supply part of the desired directory name in the command line and let kcd find it for you. It rescans directories quickly because it saves timestamps so it won't rescan unchanged directories. You can tell the program to skip certain directories, or chose if you want just part of the tree. kcd supports the bash, ash, pdksh, zsh, and tcsh shells.
