dirname - strip last component from file name
dirname [OPTION] NAME...
Output each NAME with its last non-slash component and trailing slashes removed; if NAME contains no /'s, output '.' (meaning the current directory). -z, --zero separate output with NUL rather than newline --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit
dirname /usr/bin/ -> "/usr" dirname dir1/str dir2/str -> "dir1" followed by "dir2" dirname stdio.h -> "."
