shtool-mkdir - GNU shtool mkdir(1) style command
shtool mkdir [-t|--trace] [-f|--force] [-p|--parents] [-m|--mode mode] [-o|--owner owner]
[-g|--group group] 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 installation procedures.
The following command line options are available.
Shows the actually involved shell commands.
Forced continuation and no complaints if directory already exists. Default is to
terminate with error.
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
-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
