shtool mkdir - GNU shtool mkdir(1) style command
dir [dir ...]
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
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
