Find the directory in which a program is running


I'm wondering if this is possible. I run several FORTRAN programs in different directories that have the same name (say program_X).

I use the command 'top' to find the programs running and the time taken. I'm wondering if it's possible to the directory in which these programs are running, so if I want to stop a particular program I know that I'm stopping the program in the directory I want it to be deleted.
