MS-DOS Commands :: md (mkdir)


Creates a directory.

The command mkdir is the same as the md command; they do the same thing. You can use either the mkdir command or use the md command which takes fewer characters to type.

md /?

Creates a directory.

MKDIR [drive:]path
MD [drive:]path

If Command Extensions are enabled MKDIR changes as follows:

MKDIR creates any intermediate directories in the path, if needed.
For example, assume \a does not exist then:

    mkdir \a\b\c\d

is the same as:

    mkdir \a
    chdir \a
    mkdir b
    chdir b
    mkdir c
    chdir c
    mkdir d

which is what you would have to type if extensions were disabled.

(Enlarge: md /?)
