in thread Getting the shell's version of working directory, without PWD's help

Yup sorry, bad title. It's not the absolute path of the script I want, but the "current directory" in absolute path format. By the way, $0 and __FILE__ also do not seem to resolve symlinks so I'm guessing perl gets them from the shell also.
