DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The pwd command writes to standard output the  full  pathname
  of  your current working directory.  All directories
       are separated by a / (slash).  The first / represents  the
       root  directory  and the last directory named is your current
 working directory.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
  An error occurred.


       The  following  environment variables affect the execution
       of pwd: Provides a default value for the internationalization
 variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset or
       null, the corresponding value from the default  locale  is
       used.   If  any of the internationalization variables contain
 an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of
       the  variables  had  been  defined.  If set to a non-empty
       string value, overrides the values of all the other internationalization
  variables.  Determines the locale for the
       format and contents  of  diagnostic  messages  written  to
       standard  error.  Determines the location of message catalogues
 for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
