mkdir—Make directories

mkdir [–p] [–m mode] [–parents] [–mode=mode] [–help] [–version] dir…

This manual page documents the GNU version of mkdir. mkdir creates a directory with each given name. By default, the mode of created directories is 0777 minus the bits set in the umask.


Options Description
–m, –mode mode Set the mode of created directories to mode, which is symbolic as in chmod and uses the default mode as the point of departure.
–p, –parents Ensure that each given directory exists. Create any missing parent directories for each argument. Parent directories default to the umask modified by u+wx. Do not consider an argument directory that already exists to be an error.
–help Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.
–version Print version information on standard output then exit successfully.
