Comments:

  PUSHD is a lot like CD, except that it stores the current directory
  before changing it. Later on, POPD can be used to restore it. 
  PUSHD can be used several times, storing a stack of directories.
  Using PUSHD without specifying a directory will store the current 
  directory, but not change it.
  POPD is a command internal to command.com 
  and needs no other file in order to work.
