*cwd *[image: $ <$] default directory [image: $ >$]
*Acceptable Values: *UNIX directory name
*Description: *The default directory for input and output files. If a value
is given, all filenames that do not begin with a / are assumed to be in this
directory. For example, if cwd is set to /scr, then a filename of outfile would
be modified to /scr/outfile while a filename of /tmp/outfile would remain
unchanged. If no value for cwd is specified, than all filenames are left
unchanged *but are assumed to be relative to the directory which contains
the configuration file given on the command line*.
