BASENAME(1)                                           BASENAME(1)

     NAME
          basename - strip file name affixes

     SYNOPSIS
          basename [ -d ] string [ suffix ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Basename deletes any prefix ending in slash (/) and the
          suffix, if present in string, from string, and prints the
          result on the standard output.

          The -d option instead prints the directory component, that
          is, string up to but not including the final slash.  If the
          string contains no slash, the current directory name `.'  is
          printed.
