MKDIR(1)                                                 MKDIR(1)

     NAME
          mkdir - make a directory

     SYNOPSIS
          mkdir [ -p ] [ dirname ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Mkdir creates the specified directories. It requires write
          permission in the parent directory.

          The -p option causes mkdir to create the whole path dirname,
          including any missing parent directories; it also will not
          complain if dirname already exists and is a directory.

          The new directories are created with permissions starting
          with 8r777 but masked with the permissions of the parent
          directory according to the procedure followed by sys-open(2). For example, if the parent directory lacks write
          permission for group and has no permissions for others, so
          will the newly created directory.

     SOURCE
          /appl/cmd/mkdir.b

     SEE ALSO

     DIAGNOSTICS
          If any directory cannot be created successfully, mkdir
          prints a warning, and continues with any remaining directo-
          ries, but returns "error" exit status at the end.
