MKNOD(8)                                                 MKNOD(8)

     NAME
          mknod - build special file

     SYNOPSIS
          /etc/mknod name [ c ] [ b ] major minor

     DESCRIPTION
          Mknod makes a special file.  The first argument is the name
          of the entry.  The second is b if the special file is
          block-type (disks, tape) or c if it is character-type (other
          devices).  The last two arguments are numbers specifying the
          major device type and the minor device (e.g. unit, drive, or
          line number).

          The assignment of major device numbers is specific to each
          system.  They have to be dug out of the system source file
          conf/devices.
