in thread current directory

"file names are same ; and i did cwd , it still says the same error ."

There were no replies when I started composing my response. My post was not related to Athanasius' post nor your 'hey it says "permission denied "'.

"i was hoping is there any command that brings us to the current directory ?"

That would be chdir — follow the link I posted above.

"and if anyone can please state what could be the reason for permission deniale"

That would depend on your OS. On *nix, it usually means you don't have write access to either the directory or the specific file.

Your questions suggest you're unfamiliar with the OS you're working on. I'd recommend seeking advice from the system administrator.

    I am working on windows xp

      If it's a temporary file you created in that program, then I'm guessing you still have the file open.
