Unix Command - pwd

pwd Command (print working directory) is used to print the name of current working directory from a computer's command-line interface. If the shell prompt does not already show this, the user can use this command to find their place in the directory tree. This command is found in the Unix family of operating systems and other flavors as well. The DOS equivalent is "CD" with no arguments.

It is a command which is sometimes included built into certain shells such as sh, and bash. It can be implemented easily with the POSIX C functions getcwd() and/or getwd().
