Man Page for MKDIR




NAME

       mkdir - make directories


SYNOPSIS

       mkdir  [-p]  [-m  mode] [--parents] [--mode=mode] [--help]
       [--version] dir...


DESCRIPTION

       This manual page  documents  the  GNU  version  of  mkdir.
       mkdir  creates  a  directory  with  each  given  name.  By
       default, the mode of created directories is 0777 minus the
       bits set in the umask.

   OPTIONS
       -m, --mode mode
              Set  the mode of created directories to mode, which
              is symbolic as in chmod and uses the  default  mode
              as the point of departure.

       -p, --parents
              Ensure  that  each  given directory exists.  Create
              any missing parent directories for  each  argument.
              Parent directories default to the umask modified by
              `u+wx'.  Do not consider an argument directory that
              already exists to be an error.

       --help Print  a  usage message on standard output and exit
              successfully.

       --version
              Print version information on standard  output  then
              exit successfully.
