I want to write an executable file in unix env to go to a particular path instead of always typing the long path cd /app/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1/scripts/prejib/sample.

I have tried with the below script in but not working . please help me

bash-3.00$ cat a.sh#!/bin/sh

echo $mypath
cd $mypath

bash-3.00$ chmod +x a.sh
bash-3.00$ sh a.sh
bash-3.00$ pwd

After executing the file a.sh, I am in the same path only

Because you start a new shell.

When you run

sh a.sh

You start a new shell, and that new shell runs a.sh, and then closes again so you are again in your old shell where nothing has changed.

Try running just "a.sh" in your current shell.
