Very useful when you need to jump in and out of a terminal. I use it when I need to do diffs or run a python script etc.

Very handy! I missed it when Lion was first released and my old version was incompatible; glad to have it back! As a programmer/data munger, I spend a lot of time in the Terminal, and it's very nice to be able to navigate through a complex set of directories in Dropbox or what have you, then press a button and instantly be in a Terminal window at that directory. It's the little things in life that help so much.

Works fine on Lion. Added to Finder Toolbar, looks really useful.

Maybe his heirs wanted him to be forgotten so they changed his name to something appropriate. Who knows...

Version 2.5 yields the following on Snow Leopard: printf %b '\033c'; cd $'/Users/rcd/a/b/c/d' Illegal variable name.

the snow leopard version is actually version 2.3. lion has a new api so it doesn't have to send shell commands (which cause problems when people aren't using the default shell of bash). If you are using tcsh on snowleopard you can try out a modified version of a plugin that was posted to the cdto issue tracker http://code.google.com/p/cdto/issues/detail?id=29

It doesn't seem to work when your default shell is tcsh

This is almost perfect, the one problem is that it doesn't work with Spaces. :-(

Pretty neat... works as advised - Since I'm using the Terminal almost every day, it's really useful to me :)

Does not work if your shell script is tcsh! I get the error message "Illegal variable name."

Easy to use, does what it claims, makes life easy for those of us who do not live in the Terminal.app but need to jump in occasionally.

I dig this, especially added to the Finder toolbar. It would be nice to have the option to specify a command that runs after clicking... like ls -l, for example.

I've tried to correct this in the default case in 2.1. But it's really hard to figure out if the window was just created by the terminal.app, but i think i came up with a way to do it, but it only works if you haven't changed your default shell settings too much.

>cd to ... should be a lot faster because it's not using applescript but apple events directly instead. >cd to .. is only designed to be used from the finder toolbar (but that makes more sense because you'd have to navigate from the finder first anyway. And it seems cdf from what you've cited me uses gui scripting which is very sketchy thing to do and unnecessary because the terminal is directly scriptable to run commands.
