Follow-up Comment #1, patch #6035 (project pspp):

This does what I'd expect a CD command to do, but it doesn't do everything
that the SPSS CD command does.  In particular: the CD command can specify a
file handle instead of a directory name; the directory name may use a
system-specific environment variable syntax (see;
and the directory name may actually name a file (existing or non-existing), in
which case the file portion is stripped.

Also, I am unsure how CD should interact with file handles.  If I specify a
file handle as pointing to a file named 'foo.dat', and then I CD to another
directory and use the file handle, should it refer to foo.dat in the old or
the new directory?
