No, really, I didn't know that. But ...

jbaer at robinson:~$ echo $CDPATH

jbaer at robinson:~$ export CDPATH=/home/jbaer
jbaer at robinson:~$ cd warez
bash: cd: warez: No such file or directory
jbaer at robinson:~$ ls incoming/warez/

$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 4.3.25(1)-release (i586-pc-linux-gnu)

/me checks the manpage.

Drat! It's not listed. Yeah, one of these days, I'll upgrade. Until then,
I'll just have to cd the old fashioned way. Good thing I'm wearing hiking
