dirname is a command in Linux which is used to remove the trailing forward slashes “/” from the NAME and prints the remaining portion. If the argument NAME does not contains the forward slash “/” then it simply prints dot “.”. 

Syntax:

dirname [OPTION] NAME

 

Options provided by dirname:

  • dirname -zero NAME or dirname –z NAME : This option provides a way to end the line by a null command rather than a new line. Using this the next command will execute on the same line rather than on the next line. 
  • dirname –help : It displays help information. 
  • dirname –version : It displays version information.
