dirname

 
Calculates the parent directory of a given file or directory path. More information: https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/dirname.
 
  • Calculate the parent directory of a given path:
     
    dirname {{path/to/file_or_directory}}
     
  • Calculate the parent directory of multiple paths:
     
    dirname {{path/to/file_a}} {{path/to/directory_b}}
     
  • Delimit output with a NUL character instead of a newline (useful when combining with xargs):
     
    dirname --zero {{path/to/directory_a}} {{path/to/file_b}}
