DESCRIPTION

  The pwd command writes to standard output the	full pathname of your current
  working directory.  All directories are separated by a / (slash).  The
  first	/ represents the root directory	and the	last directory named is	your
  current working directory.

EXIT STATUS

  The following	exit values are	returned:

  0   Successful completion.

  >>0  An error occurred.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

  The following	environment variables affect the execution of pwd:

  LANG
      Provides a default value for the internationalization variables that
      are unset	or null. If LANG is unset or null, the corresponding value
      from the default locale is used.	If any of the internationalization
      variables	contain	an invalid setting, the	utility	behaves	as if none of
      the variables had	been defined.

  LC_ALL
      If set to	a non-empty string value, overrides the	values of all the
      other internationalization variables.

  LC_MESSAGES
      Determines the locale for	the format and contents	of diagnostic mes-
      sages written to standard	error.

  NLSPATH
      Determines the location of message catalogues for	the processing of
      LC_MESSAGES.
