LLE10054 : Howto create a directory with missing parent directories

Symptom:

You need to create a directory but dont know if the parent directories exist yet

Cause:

none

Solution:

To create a directory under linux you use the mkdir command. When you have to create a directory but you do not know in advance if all the parent directories exist, you can use the -p parameter. This will create them automatically. e.g.:

mkdir -p ThisParent/ThanThisOne/TheFolder 

will create the direcorier "ThisParent" and "ThanThisOne" if they do not exist yet before creating the directories "TheFolder".
