In Matlab the command 

will return the current directory (same as pwd) and stay in the same

In Octave, issuing "cd" will not print the current directory, but instead
change the working directory to the user profile folder. (Win7, Octave 3.8)

Can this be changed?
I know, that this is the default way cd works in Linux, but maybe there could
be an option "use Matlab-style cd command".

I also know, that

curDir = cd
will save the current directory, but it then still changes to user profile
folder. Anyway, the default behavior of cd is not Matlab compatible.
