Linux Tutorial Series – 27 – The pwd command

Here is the video version, if you prefer it:

pwd prints the name of the current working directory. This is useful when changing directories with cd and you want to know where you are. For example:

mislav@mislavovo-racunalo:~/Documents$ cd django-rest-tutorial

mislav@mislavovo-racunalo:~/Documents/django-rest-tutorial$ pwd


pwd stands for “print working/current directory”. (“pwd(1) – Linux man page,” n.d.)⁠

Hope this was useful!
