Hi Ralf: thank you for your response,

    Instead of something cryptic like

         printf "${PWD##*/}\n"

    I would use

        basename $PWD


	basename $(pwd)


Of course, I considered that!  ;-)

Whatever your preference, my rationale for


is found here:


    "No need for basename, and especially no need for a subshell running pwd
     (which adds an extra, and expensive, fork operation); the shell can do
     this internally using parameter expansion ..."

Best, ...
