Vim : change current working directory

When we work with vim, usually it will start with our current home directory. If we want to change global working directory of vim to the current edited file, we can do by executing :cd %:p:h and it will show the directory it changed to. To change only for the current window we can do :lcd %:p:h. I like to use :split command to edit minimal 2 file and :lcd will come handy if we will work on multiple directory also.

Thats all. Keep it simple. Step by step.
