Hide output of pushd or popd bash shell command

Hide output of pushd or popd bash shell command

Simple as it is a couple of weeks ago when writing a shell script I wanted to hide the out put of shell commands. Specifically pushd and popd, I completely forgot this could easily be solved by redirecting stdout to device /dev/null (aka 'the void')

pushd /var/storage > /dev/null

You can use this for any shell command you want to hide output for.

Jelly Croissants

Jelly Croissants,
Growing up my family would go camping in the hamptons. At montauk point in town there was a bake shop that we would always frequent. It's on the corner next to a liqour store on the right before the circle in the center of town.

I was at the UMass NYC Area Freshmen Welcome & Greeting and happened to meet some one but first let regress to 4 weeks ago .......

I was picking my friend on montauk highway while because he needed to drop off his car, when I was picking him up, two girls drove up next to us asking for directions to local bars and clubs. We invited them to hang out at the house where people were partying, we noticed when the got to the house that they look pretty young and soon after they left.

...... Present Day NYC me and a few other of the younger alumni can to the Freshmen Welcome and out of only 15 freshmen who would one of them be but one of the random girls I meet in the Hamptons named Lindsay

Such a small world!
