19.1 pwd: Print working directory

pwd prints the fully resolved name of the current directory. That is, all components of the printed name will be actual directory names--none will be symbolic links.

Because most shells have a built-in command by the same name, using the unadorned command name in a script or interactively may get you different functionality than that described here.

The only options are a lone `--help' or `--version'. See section 2. Common options.
