or 0X, it is interpreted as hexadecimal; otherwise, if it begins with
0, as octal; otherwise, as decimal. TYPE may be:
b create a block (buffered) special file
c, u create a character (unbuffered) special file
p create a FIFO
NOTE: your shell may have its own version of mknod, which usually
supersedes the version described here. Please refer to your shell's
documentation for details about the options it supports.
