mkdir - make directories
mkdir [options] directory...
POSIX options: [-p] [-m mode]
GNU options (shortest form): [-p] [-m mode] [--verbose]
[--help] [--version] [--]
mkdir creates directories with the specified names.
By default, the mode of created directories is 0777
(`a+rwx') minus the bits set in the umask.
-m mode, --mode=mode
Set the mode of created directories to mode, which may
be symbolic as in chmod(1) and then uses the default
mode as the point of departure.
Make any missing parent directories for each directory
argument. The mode for parent directories is set to
the umask modified by `u+wx'. Ignore arguments
corresponding to existing directories. (Thus, if a
directory /a exists, then `mkdir /a' is an error, but
`mkdir -p /a' is not.)
Print a message for each created directory. This is
most useful with --parents.

Print version information on standard output, then exit

The variables LANG, LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE and LC_MESSAGES have
the usual meaning.
