PWD(1)                       BSD Reference Manual                       PWD(1)

NAME
     pwd - return working directory name

SYNOPSIS
     pwd

DESCRIPTION
     Pwd writes the absolute pathname of the current working directory to the
     standard output.

     The pwd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

STANDARDS
     The pwd command is expected to be IEEE Std1003.2 (``POSIX'') compatible .

SEE ALSO
     cd(1),  csh(1),  getcwd(3)

BUGS
     In csh(1) the command dirs is always faster (although it can give a dif-
     ferent answer in the rare case that the current directory or a containing
     directory was moved after the shell descended into it).
