mkdir

make directories

- Create a directory in current folder or given path:
mkdir [directory]

- Create directories recursively (useful for creating nested dirs):
mkdir -p [path/to/directory]

mkdir [,OPTION/]... ,DIRECTORY/...

Create the DIRECTORY(ies), if they do not already exist.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

-m, --mode=,MODE/
set file mode (as in chmod), not a=rwx - umask
-p, --parents
no error if existing, make parent directories as needed
-v, --verbose
print a message for each created directory
-Z
set SELinux security context of each created directory to the default type
--context[=,CTX/]
like -Z, or if CTX is specified then set the SELinux or SMACK security context to CTX
--help
display this help and exit
--version
output version information and exit
