SHTOOL-MKDIR.TMP(1)	    GNU	Portable Shell Tool	   SHTOOL-MKDIR.TMP(1)

NAME
       shtool mkdir - GNU shtool mkdir(1) style	command

SYNOPSIS
       shtool mkdir [-t|--trace] [-f|--force] [-p|--parents] [-m|--mode	mode]
       [-o|--owner owner] [-g|--group group] dir [dir ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This is a mkdir(1) style	command	with additional	options	and the
       ability to be smart if the directory already exists which is important
       for installation	procedures.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options are available.

       -t, --trace
	   Shows the actually involved shell commands.

       -f, --force
	   Forced continuation and no complaints if directory already exists.
	   Default is to terminate with	error.

       -p, --parents
	   Automatic parent directory creation.	Default	is to only create the
	   last	directory in the path and fail if parents are missing.

       -m, --mode mode
	   The directory mode applied to the directory,	see chmod(1). Omitting
	   mode	skips this step	and leaves the operating system	default	which
	   is usually based on umask(1). Some directory	modes require
	   superuser privileges	to be set. Default is to stick with operating
	   system defaults.

       -o, --owner owner
	   The directory owner name or id applied to the directory, see
	   chown(1).  This option requires superuser privileges	to execute.
	   Default is to skip this step	and leave the operating	system default
	   which is usually based on the executing uid or the parent setuid
	   directory.

       -g, --group group
	   The directory group name or id applied to the directory, see
	   chgrp(1). This option requires superuser privileges to execute to
	   the fullest extend, otherwise the choice of group is	limited	on
	   most	operating systems.  Default is to skip this step and leave the
	   operating system default which is usually based on the executing
	   gid or the parent setgid directory.

EXAMPLE
	#   Makefile
	install:
	    shtool mkdir -f -p -m 755 $(bindir)
	    shtool mkdir -f -p -m 755 $(mandir)/man1
	     :

HISTORY
       The GNU shtool mkdir command was	originally written for Public Domain

       <rse@engelschall.com> in	1999 for inclusion into	GNU shtool.

SEE ALSO
       shtool(1), mkdir(1).
