I am tracking down an odd effect from one of my scripts.
After I run this rather complicated bach script, if I give an ls command it returnes only the command prompt, no files, no directories, no output of any sort.
I stumbled accross a cure for this by trial and error.
If I give the command "cd ." and further ls returnes the correct file list.
I tried adding a cd . as the last line of the script but it didn't seem to fix the problem.
What is happening that would disable ls
What am I doing that would cause this effect.
