pwd(1)				 User Commands				pwd(1)

NAME
       pwd - return working directory name

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/pwd

DESCRIPTION
       The pwd utility writes an absolute path name of the current working di-
       rectory to standard output.

       Both the	Bourne shell, sh(1), and the Korn shell, ksh(1), also  have  a
       built-in	pwd command.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See  environ(5) for descriptions	of the following environment variables
       that affect the	execution  of  pwd:  LANG,  LC_ALL,  LC_MESSAGES,  and
       NLSPATH.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Successful completion.

       >0	An error occurred.

       If an error is detected,	output will not	be written to standard output,
       a diagnostic message will be written to standard	error,	and  the  exit
       status will not be  0.

ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+
       |      ATTRIBUTE	TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |

       cd(1),  ksh(1),	sh(1),	shell_builtins(1),  attributes(5), environ(5),
       standards(5)

DIAGNOSTICS
       ``Cannot	open ..'' and ``Read error in ..'' indicate possible file sys-
       tem trouble and should be referred to a UNIX system administrator.

NOTES
       If  you	move  the current directory or one above it,  pwd may not give
       the correct response. Use the  cd(1) command with a full	path  name  to
       correct this situation.
