Linux 2.6 - man page for shtool-mkdir (linux section 1)

SHTOOL-MKDIR.TMP(1)		     GNU Portable Shell Tool		      SHTOOL-MKDIR.TMP(1)

NAME
       shtool-mkdir - GNU shtool mkdir(1) style command

SYNOPSIS
       shtool mkdir [-t|--trace] [-f|--force] [-p|--parents] [-m|--mode mode] [-o|--owner owner]
       [-g|--group group] dir [dir ...]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       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 directory.

EXAMPLE
	#   Makefile
	install:
	    shtool mkdir -f -p -m 755 $(bindir)
	    shtool mkdir -f -p -m 755 $(mandir)/man1
	     :
