Bash shell option

If you are using bash shell. There is a way to cd a particular directory even if you spelled incorrectly on the command line. Set the shell option to:

shopt -s cdspell

eg:-
Suppose you want to cd to "cd /tmp" and you have miss typed to "cd /pmp" still it will cd to "cd /tmp".

This setting will be very usefull if you have a long named directory.
