wait4path -- wait for given path to show up in the namespace SYNOPSIS
wait4path <path> DESCRIPTION
The wait4path program simply checks to see if the given path exists, and if so, it exits. Otherwise, it sleeps until the mount table is updated and checks again. The program will loop indefinitely until the path shows up in the file system namespace. Mac OS X 10.4 April 6, 2004 Mac OS X 10.4

mkpath_np -- Auxiliary routine for efficiently creating paths SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> int mkpath_np(const char * path, mode_t omode); DESCRIPTION
This routine allows the caller to create a path, including intermediate directories. It is equivalent to calling mkdir(1) with the -p com- mand line argument. Intermediate directories are created with permission bits of rwxrwxrwx (0777) as modified by the current umask, plus write and search permis- sion for the owner. The leaf directory is created with permission bits of omode as modified by the current umask. RETURN VALUES
A 0 return value indicates success. If an error occurs, the return value is a non-zero error code. Note that EEXIST is returned iff the leaf directory already exists and is a directory, so under certain circumstances, this error value may not indicate a failure state. This routine does NOT modify errno. ERRORS
Any error code that can be returned by mkdir(2) can be returned by mkpath_np(), but mkpath_np() will return the error code rather than set- ting errno. [ENOTDIR] A component of the path is not a directory (in contrast to mkdir(2) which returns this based on the path prefix rather than the path). [EEXIST] The path already exists and is a directory.

This function first appeared in iOS 5.0. SEE ALSO
