MKDIR(1) General Commands Manual MKDIR(1)
mkdir - make a directory
mkdir [ -p ] dirname...
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.
chmod(1V), rm(1), mkdir(2V), umask(2V)
