pawd - print automounter working directory



      pawd - print automounter working directory


      pawd [path ...]


      pawd is used to print the current working directory, adjusted to reflect
      proper paths that can be reused to go through the automounter for the
      shortest possible path.  In particular, the path printed back does not
      include any of Amd´s local mount points.  Using them is unsafe, because
      Amd may unmount managed file systems from the mount points, and thus
      including them in paths may not always find the files within.
      Without any arguments, pawd will print the automounter adjusted current
      working directory.  With any number of arguments, it will print the
      adjusted path of each one of the arguments.
      pwd(1), amd(8), amq(8)


      The pawd utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
