Description Martin Frodl 2015-09-30 07:21:00 UTC
Description of problem:

According to builtins(1) man page, bash 'cd' command has the following syntax that includes the option -e:

cd [-L|[-P [-e]]] [dir]
       ... If the -e option is supplied with -P, and the current  working
       directory cannot be successfully determined after a successful directory
       change, cd will return an unsuccessful status. ...

However, the option does not seem to be recognised by cd:

$ cd -P -e somewhere
bash: cd: -e: invalid option
cd: usage: cd [-L|[-P [-e]]] [dir]
