______________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       pwd - Return the	absolute path of the current working directory

SYNOPSIS
       pwd
______________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       Returns the absolute path name of the current working directory.

EXAMPLE
       Sometimes it is useful to change	to a known directory when running some
       external	command	using exec, but	it is important	to keep	 the  applica-
       tion  usually  running  in the directory	that it	was started in (unless
       the user	specifies otherwise) since that	minimizes user confusion.  The
       way to do this is to save the current directory while the external com-
       mand is being run:
	      set tarFile [file	normalize somefile.tar]
	      set savedDir [pwd]
	      cd /tmp
	      exec tar -xf $tarFile
	      cd $savedDir
