fcd : file change directory
A bash function that takes a fully qualified file path and cd's into the directory where it lives. Useful on the commadline when you have a file name in a variable and you'd like to cd to the directory to RCS check it in or look at other files associated with it.
Will run on any ksh, bash, likely sh, maybe zsh.
There are 2 alternatives - vote for the best!
Had trouble with the other function, because of missing semicolons. (According to my bash on OS X)
