dirs

Display the list of currently remembered directories.

Syntax
      dirs [-clpv] [+n] [-n]

Key
   +n   Display the nth entry counting from the left of the list shown by dirs when
        invoked without options, starting with zero.

   -n   Display the nth entry counting from the right of the list shown by dirs when
        invoked without options, starting with zero.

   -c   Clear the directory stack by deleting all of the entries.

   -l   Produce a longer listing; the default listing format using a tilde to
        denote the home directory.

   -p   Print the directory stack with one entry per line.

   -v   Print  the directory stack with one entry per line, prefixing each entry with
        its index in the stack.

Without options, displays the list of currently remembered directories. The default display is on a single line with directory names separated by spaces. Directories are added to the list with the pushd command; the popd command removes entries from the list.

The return value is 0 unless an invalid option is supplied or n indexes beyond the end of the directory stack.

dirs is a bash built in command.
