     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.

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