 NAME
      pwd - working directory name

 SYNOPSIS
      pwd

 DESCRIPTION
      pwd prints the path name of the working (current) directory.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is set to the
      empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each
      unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to
      the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of
      LANG.

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, pwd
      behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".	See
      environ(5).

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

 DIAGNOSTICS
      Cannot open ..
      Read error in ..
	      Possible file system trouble; contact system administrator.

      pwd: cannot access parent directories
	      Current directory has been removed (usually by a different
	      process).	 Use cd command to move to a valid directory (see
	      cd(1)).

 EXAMPLES
      This command lists the path of the current working directory.  If your
      home directory were /mnt/staff and the command cd camp/nevada were
      executed from the home directory, typing pwd would produce the
      following:

	   /mnt/staff/camp/nevada

 AUTHOR
      pwd was developed by AT&T and HP.
