The mkdir keyword[edit | edit source]

mkdir creates a new directory with the name specified by FILENAME with the given MASK for permissions. Without MASK, the value 0777 is taken. Trailing slashed are removed from FILENAME.

mkdir returns true on success and false otherwise. It also and sets $! (errno).

If the operating system supports fchdir(2), a DIRHANDLE or FILEHANDLE can also be used. If this is not the case, an exception is raised.

Syntax[edit | edit source]

  mkdir FILENAME

Examples[edit | edit source]

mkdir DataDir\abcweb
chdir closedir mkdir opendir readdir rewinddir rmdir seekdir telldir
