Review request for KDevelop.


Extended "bdir!" command functionality as per David Nolden's request (first part).

Description (updated)

This adds 2 new commands for syncing the shell working directory (in
These are
- "project!", which navigates to the root directory of a project, and
- "bdir!", which navigates to the build directory of a project (if one is returned by the build manager), using shell's cwd (if in source tree) to find the corresponding subdirectory in the build tree.

These commands take an optional argument - project name, which (if exists) is handled as a target project name prefix and is collated in case-insensitive mode.
Thus, to navigate to kdevplatform's root directory one may type "project! kdevpl".
If that argument is not given, the project of currently open document is selected.

Reason: I just found these commands useful. Maybe someone else also will.

Diffs (updated)

  shell/projectcontroller.h e21345f 
  shell/projectcontroller.cpp bc557bd 
  util/ d428f6c 



Used the newly-added commands for a sufficiently long time period (~2 weeks).
