NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pawd -- print automounter working directory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     pawd [path ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     pawd is used to print the current working directory, adjusted to reflect
     proper paths that can be reused to go through the automounter for the
     shortest possible path.  In particular, the path printed back does not
     include any of Amd's local mount points.  Using them is unsafe, because
     Amd may unmount managed file systems from the mount points, and thus
     including them in paths may not always find the files within.

     Without any arguments, pawd will print the automounter adjusted current
     working directory.  With any number of arguments, it will print the
     adjusted path of each one of the arguments.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     pwd(1), amd(8), amq(8)

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pawd utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.

FreeBSD 5.2.1			January 6, 1998 		 FreeBSD 5.2.1
