script type
Add commands :Scd and :Slcd for changing to any directory by matching its path fragments.  Record the Vim-visited directories in the scd directory index.  This plugin is an interface to the scd shell script that provides the same functionality in a terminal.

For details see
install details
Linux, Mac OS X or other Unix-like system only.

(1) Make sure zsh (Z shell) is available or install it with "sudo apt-get install zsh".

(2) Expand the archive and create symbolic link to its vim/plugin/scd.vim file in the Vim plugin directory:

ln -si $PWD/vim/plugin/scd.vim ~/.vim/plugin/

If you install the scd.vim plugin by copying, make sure to also add the bin/scd script to some directory in the PATH.  Another option is to set the g:scd_command variable in vimrc to specify the scd location.

(3) Optional - for best results activate scd also in system shell as described at
