mknod - make a directory or a special file
mknod(name, mode, addr)
Mknod creates a new file whose name is the null-terminated string pointed to by name. The
mode of the new file (including directory and special file bits) is initialized from mode.
(The protection part of the mode is modified by the process's mode mask; see umask(2)).
The first block pointer of the i-node is initialized from addr. For ordinary files and
directories addr is normally zero. In the case of a special file, addr specifies which
Mknod may be invoked only by the super-user.
mkdir(1), mknod(1), filsys(5)
Zero is returned if the file has been made; -1 if the file already exists or if the user
is not the super-user.
(mknod = 14.)
sys mknod; name; mode; addr
