I was working in the bash terminal on my system (OSX 10.8.3 / bash version 3.2.48(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin12)) and I accidentally typed "cd //" instead of "cd /" to get back to the root directory.
Strange thing was that it took me to "//" which when I listed looked exactly like "/".
So my questions are:
Is there any semantic difference betweens these two paths?
What if anything is the purpose of these two paths? and/or is it a bug?
