MKDIR(1)                    General Commands Manual                   MKDIR(1)



NAME
       mkdir - make a directory

SYNOPSIS
       mkdir [ -p ] dirname...

DESCRIPTION
       mkdir  creates  directories.   Standard entries, `.', for the directory
       itself, and `..'  for its parent, are made automatically.

       The -p flag allows missing parent directories to be created as needed.

       With the exception of the set-gid bit, the  current  umask(2V)  setting
       determines  the  mode in which directories are created.  The new direc-
       tory inherits the set-gid bit of the parent directory.   Modes  may  be
       modified after creation by using chmod(1V).

       mkdir requires write permission in the parent directory.

SEE ALSO
       chmod(1V), rm(1), mkdir(2V), umask(2V)
