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 Std	1003.2 ("POSIX.2") 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).
