NAME
     pwd -- return working directory name

SYNOPSIS
     pwd

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

     Some shells may provide a builtin pwd command which is similar or identi-
     cal to this utility.  Consult the builtin(1) manual page.

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

STANDARDS
     The pwd utility is	expected to be IEEE Std	1003.2 ("POSIX.2") compatible.
     The -L flag is not	supported.

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

BUGS
     In	csh(1) the command dirs	is always faster because it is built into that
     shell.  However, it can give a different answer in	the rare case that the
     current directory or a containing directory was moved after the shell de-
     scended into it.
