This lets you change the current working directory used by MUSHclient. This is useful for situations (like plugins) where you want to load files relative to the plugin location but are unsure if the working directory is at the plugin location. eg.

ChangeDir (GetInfo (66)) --> ensure directory is MUSHclient.exe directory

Note that some actions (like opening world files) may change the directory (eg. to the world file directory) as a side-effect.

Note: Available in version 3.80 onwards.

VBscript example
ChangeDir GetInfo (66)
Lua example
ChangeDir (GetInfo (66))
Returns 0 - Did not change directory
1 - Did it OK
Introduced in version 3.80
