PWD(1)				     General Commands Manual				   PWD(1)

NAME
       pwd, pbd - working directory

SYNOPSIS
       pwd
       pbd

DESCRIPTION
       Pwd  prints  the  path  name of the working (current) directory. Pwd does not guarantee to
       return the same path that was used to enter  the  directory.  The  returned  path  may  be
       another	route  through	the  name space to the same working directory. This behavior will
       arise when a combination of mounts or binds produces a graph in the file name space tree.

       Pbd prints the base name of the working (current) directory.  It prints no  final  newline
       and is intended for applications such as constructing shell prompts.

SOURCE
       /sys/src/cmd/pwd.c
       /sys/src/cmd/pbd.c

SEE ALSO
       cd in rc(1), bind(1), getwd(2)

BUGS
       A  kernel  bug sometimes prevents pbd from working when the current directory is a device,
       in which case pbd returns `.'.
