NAME
       mkdir - make a directory

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

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

       If the -p flag is given, mkdir creates any necessary parent directories
       and does not complain if the target directory already exists.

       The -m flag sets the permissions to be used when creating the
       directory.  The default is 0777.

SEE ALSO

       cd in rc(1)

DIAGNOSTICS
       Mkdir returns null exit status if all directories were successfully
       made.  Otherwise it prints a diagnostic and returns "error" status.
