PAWD(1) BSD General Commands Manual PAWD(1)NAMEpawd — print automounter working directory
SYNOPSISpawd [path ...]
The pawd utility 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(8)'s local mount points. Using them is
unsafe, because amd(8) may unmount managed file systems from the mount
points, and thus including them in paths may not always find the files
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.
