The mkdir procedure
The mkdir procedure creates a new directory/folder. If the directory/folder
already exists then the mkdir procedure call will fail.
- The first parameter is an expression of
string type or char type
which is the name of the directory/folder to create. If the directory/folder being created is
a sub-directory/sub-folder then the parent directories/folders must exist.
- The second parameter is optional, and if supplied is an
integral type which specifies permissions for the
directory/folder being created. The permission constants
can be used to specify directory/folder permissions. If this parameter is not supplied then
the default permissions are used. NOTE: Some operating systems like Windows
ignore this parameter.
The following call to create the directory/folder c:\irie\test will fail if the
directory/folder c:\irie does not already exist.
mkdir('\irie\test') makes the directory 'test' in
the directory '\irie'
