pwd != "print working directory"

Its "Present Working Directory". Its a very common mistake that i see all over the place. Unless its meaning has changed, I learned it from some of the older SCO manuals. Redhat linux in a nutshell also has it as "Present" instead of "Print", if your looking for a more modern reference ;-)
