mmd - mtools utility to make a DOS directory
mmd [-v] msdosdirectory [msdosdirectories...]
Displays the new directory name if the name supplied is
The mmd command makes a new directory on a DOS file system.
Unlike DOS conventions, this command accepts multiple
arguments. Reasonable care is taken to create a valid DOS
directory name. If an invalid name is specified, the mmd
command changes the directory name and displays the new
name if the -v option is specified. If the directory specified
exists, an error occurs.
DOS subdirectory names are supported with either the '/'
or '\' separator. The use of the '\' separator or wildcards
will require the directory name to be enclosed in
quotes to protect it from the shell.
The mcd command can be used to establish the device and
the current working directory (relative to DOS), otherwise
the default is A:\.
The following exit values are returned: Success. Failure.
