`mkdir': Make directories ========================= `mkdir' creates directories with the specified names. Synopsis: mkdir [OPTION]... NAME... If a NAME is an existing file but not a directory, `mkdir' prints a warning message on stderr and will exit with a status of 1 after processing any remaining NAMEs. The same is done when a NAME is an existing directory and the -p option is not given. If a NAME is an existing directory and the -p option is given, `mkdir' will ignore it. That is, `mkdir' will not print a warning, raise an error, or change the mode of the directory (even if the -m option is given), and will move on to processing any remaining NAMEs. The program accepts the following options. Also see Note: Common options. `-m MODE' `--mode=MODE' Set the mode of created directories to MODE, which is symbolic as in `chmod' and uses `a=rwx' (read, write and execute allowed for everyone) minus the bits set in the umask for the point of the departure. Note: File permissions. `-p' `--parents' Make any missing parent directories for each argument. The mode for parent directories is set to the umask modified by `u+wx'. Ignore arguments corresponding to existing directories. `-v' `--verbose' Print a message for each created directory. This is most useful with `--parents'.
