This command returns the current working directory.
There are times when it is convenient to be able to retrieve
the current working directory. The PWD command will print
the current working directory. In addition, it will save
the returned directory name in the string CURDIR. This
string can be used to label plots.
If the name CURDIR has already been defined for a non-string
(i.e., a parameter or a variable name), then the CURDIR string
will not be created.
The returned working directory name will be truncated at 255
characters (both in the printed feedback and for the CURDIR
The PWD command is implemented using the library function
GETCWD. This is not part of the Fortran standard, so the
PWD command may not be supported on all platforms. It should
be available on Unix/Linux systems. It is also supported
on Windows implementations built with the Intel compiler.
