# Up

Go up till you get to a directory that contains the folder name that you've specified.

## Usage

Using just `up` results in `cd ..`.  

If you have a dir structure like:

```
work/
└── project-name
    ├── .git
    └── src
        ├── backend
        └── frontend
            └── src
                └── components
                    └── App
```

and you are in `work/project-name/src/frontend/src/components/App/`, then 

- doing `up src` will change your CWD to `work/project-name/src/frontend/`, or
- doing `up .git` will change your CWD to `work/project-name/` 

And you can go back to `work/.../components/App` using `cd -`.
