pwd


NAME
     pwd - return working directory name

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/bin/pwd

DESCRIPTION
     The pwd utility writes an absolute path name of the  current
     working directory to standard output.

     Both the Bourne shell, sh(1), and the  Korn  shell,  ksh(1),
     also have a built-in pwd command.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
     See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment
     variables  that  affect  the execution of pwd: LANG, LC_ALL,
     LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.

EXIT STATUS
     The following exit values are returned:

     0        Successful completion.



     >0       An error occurred.



     If an error is detected, output will not be written to stan-
     dard  output,  a diagnostic message will be written to stan-
     dard error, and the exit status will not be  0.

ATTRIBUTES
     See attributes(5) for descriptions of the  following  attri-
     butes:

DIAGNOSTICS
     ``Cannot open ..'' and ``Read error in ..'' indicate  possi-
     ble  file  system  trouble  and should be referred to a UNIX
     system administrator.

NOTES
     If you move the current directory or one above it,  pwd  may
     not give the correct response. Use the  cd(1) command with a
     full path name to correct this situation.
