4.5 Your Program's Working Directory

Each time you start your program with run, it inherits its working directory from the current working directory of No value for GDBN. The No value for GDBN working directory is initially whatever it inherited from its parent process (typically the shell), but you can specify a new working directory in No value for GDBN with the cd command.

The No value for GDBN working directory also serves as a default for the commands that specify files for No value for GDBN to operate on. See section Commands to Specify Files.

cd directory

Set the No value for GDBN working directory to directory.

pwd

Print the No value for GDBN working directory.

It is generally impossible to find the current working directory of the process being debugged (since a program can change its directory during its run). If you work on a system where No value for GDBN is configured with the ‘/proc’ support, you can use the info proc command (see section SVR4 Process Information) to find out the current working directory of the debuggee.
