    Implementing cd command to a microshell

    Hi, I have to write a microshell for my class at university, and I have a really big problem with making a cd command work.
    I basically don't have anything to show you, because every way I tried it just doesn't work.
    I want something like this - cd \Desktop - work.
    I know I have to split the string into at least two, but I have no idea what else to do with it. My best shot was at using switch, but chdir did not work with it at all.
    Help please?

    How can we possibly tell you what you did wrong if you show no code?
    Why does Desktop have a windows-style backslash before it instead of the *nix-style forward slash?
    What do you mean "split the string into at least two"?
    Why would you use a switch?
    Nothing about your question makes sense.
