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
-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
-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.
