getwd(3C)						   Standard C Library Functions 						 getwd(3C)

NAME
getwd - get current working directory pathname SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> char *getwd(char *path_name); DESCRIPTION
The getwd() function determines an absolute pathname of the current working directory of the calling process, and copies that pathname into the array pointed to by the path_name argument. If the length of the pathname of the current working directory is greater than (PATH_MAX + 1) including the null byte, getwd() fails and returns a null pointer. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, a pointer to the string containing the absolute pathname of the current working directory is returned. Other- wise, getwd() returns a null pointer and the contents of the array pointed to by path_name are undefined. ERRORS
No errors are defined. USAGE
For portability to implementations conforming to versions of the X/Open Portability Guide prior to SUS, getcwd(3C) is preferred over this function. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |ATTRIBUTE TYPE |ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Standard | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
