NAME
       mkdir - make directories

SYNOPSIS
       mkdir [OPTION]... DIRECTORY...

DESCRIPTION
       Create the DIRECTORY(ies), if they do not already exist.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options
       too.

       -m, --mode=MODE
	      set file mode (as in chmod), not a=rwx - umask

       -p, --parents
	      no error if existing, make parent directories as needed

       -v, --verbose
	      print a message for each created directory

       -Z, --context=CTX

	      When  COREUTILS_CHILD_DEFAULT_ACLS  environment variable is set,
	      -p/--parents option respects default umask and ACLs, as it  does
	      in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 by default

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
