This question already has an answer here:
I'm new to Shell Scripting:
I'm trying to create a script that asks for user input as to the folder name, finds the directory the script is being run from, and creates a folder within that same directory with a bunch of files (I can do that part)
My issue is I can't seem to figure out how to make the script find its current directory without explicitly spelling it out.
I want to be able to run it from anywhere and have it create the folder right next to it without the user having to path it from the home folder every time.
Could someone help with this?
Use $PWD or pwd. Start with echo $PWD or echo pwd
Thank you. This worked really well.
