===== 8>< =====
\immediate\write18{pwd |
awk '{print "\\newcommand{\\path}{" $1 "\\xspace}"}' > tmpdatei.tex}
===== ><8 =====

If I save this file in ~/name, first name/docs/pathname.tex, the  
output of \path ends after the colon in /name, firstname/ and the  
further path name and directories were ignored. The problem is the  
space after the colon

What can I do to get complete path names?

And BTW umlauts are ignored too. What can I do to get right umlauts  
in \path

TIA and kind regards. Friedrich
