You don't need to cd to dot slash anything; dot slash is where cd looks for directories; the ./ doesn't add anything whether the directory is there or not. cd ./foo is exxactly identical to cd foo, except for two characters of pointless typing, and if you want shedloads of pointless typing then you want to do Cobol on VMS (e.g. the Cobol equivalent of main(){} runs to over 500 characters).
