script should stop if cd fails

I am writing a script to put files. For example,

option confirm on
open user@domain
cd /wherever
put index.html

But if the "cd" command fails, because the "/wherever" directory does not exist, then the script continues on. It then writes over the file index.html in the default directory.

My workaround is to turn on file overwrite confirmation, but I will have to look carefully that there is no error message a few lines up.

I would like a confirmation or abort after "cd" fails.

Thanks! 8)

Better workaround

I found a better workaround.

option confirm on
open user@domain
put index.html /wherever/

I did not realize "put" could specify the directory. And it does fail correctly!

Thanks again... :idea:
