I'm using fish version 2.7.1 running on Fedora 29 x86_64.
Let's say for example that I create a directory like this:

mkdir -- -mydirectory

this creates a directory called -mydirectory (note that its name begins with the - character)

now I want to go to that directory.

If I try to run:

cd -mydirectory

it fails with:

cd: Unknown option '-mydirectory/'
/usr/share/fish/functions/cd.fish (line 30): 
    builtin cd $argv
    ^
in function 'cd'
	called on standard input
	with parameter list '-mydirectory/'

ok, let's try with:

cd -- -mydirectory

and it fails with the error:

Too many args for cd command

So I don't know any other method to cd to that directory

I see this also in current master.

For the second case, the cd function tests if there's more than one argument and prints Too many args for cd command if there is.

@bugnano As a workaround, you can use builtin cd -- -mydirectory and it'll work, but prevd and nextd won't work right, as the cd function sets those up.

You can also use cd ./-mydirectory, which makes nextd and prevd work.

Probably the cd function should be converted to argparse.
