`dirname': Strip non-directory suffix from a file name

   `dirname' prints all but the final slash-delimited component of a
string (presumably a filename).  Synopsis:

     dirname NAME

   If NAME is a single component, `dirname' prints `.' (meaning the
current directory).

   The only options are `--help' and `--version'.  Note: Common
