hi.
Having trouble figuring out how to combine commands in Solaris.
ex: I normally use pwd to check where I am.  There are quite a fiew long paths on my system, so I'd like to something as:
find pwd -name test
instead of
find /path/to/the/polder/i'm/allready/in -name test

But I'cant figure out how to combine stuff like find and pwd. I know it's possible, but not how.
Any one?

The normal/usual way of doing it is

find . -name test
