Or, if you want to be more portable to different operating systems

use Cwd;
$PATH = cwd();

or, to override chdir to keep PWD up to date

use Cwd 'chdir';
chdir $PATH;
print $ENV{PWD};

IMHO, all the built-in things about pwd, cwd, chdir are to be used with extreme care in perl, except you realy know what they are doing.

For example:
  - manipulate the imported environment PWD, usually not what you expect
  - use `pwd` even on platforms where it is not supported (pwd.pl)
Also keep in mind that in a shell $cwd may be differ to `pwd` and both a different to that what  "df ."   reports.

Things go wrong, even with perl :-(
