Use to create a directory.

MKDIR

NAME

mkdir - Used to create a directory.

SYNOPSIS

mkdir([permissions:integer, owner:"rwx", group:"rwx", other:"rwx",] "directories");

DESCRIPTION

This function is used to create directories. The user can create several directories at the same time. If the user does mkdir("/a/b/c/d/e") where a,b,c,d and e do not exist, all directories will be created.

The permissions of the directory can be specified using:

permissions:UREAD|UWRITE.

Other permissions can be added using the Owner, Group or other functions.

The user can also include the file "/includes/extenso.sn" which contains definitions for the different permissions:

Note: In the followings examples, the _ between the { should be removed to make it work.

%include "/includes/extenso.sn";
