Bash - Print Working directory (pwd)
pwd displays the absolute pathname of the current directory in bash.
- -P will print the pathname with no symbolic links or the -o physical option to the set builtin command is enabled.
- -L will print the pathname that may contain symbolic links.
The return status is 0 unless an error occurs while reading the name of the current directory or an invalid option is supplied.
Logical [default] and Physical working directories
To print the Logical [default] and Physical working directories, use pwd -L and pwd -P
$ pwd -L /tmp/bar/baz $ pwd -P /tmp/foo
