rfmkdir(1) make remote directories


rfmkdir [ -m mode ] [ -p ] directory...


rfmkdir provides an interface to the shift remote file I/O daemon (rfiod) for creating remote directories in mode 777 (possibly altered by umask(1)). The directory argument is either a remote directory name of the form:

or a local directory name (not containing the :/ character combination). Creation of a directory requires write permission in the parent directory.


The following options apply to rfmkdir:
-m mode
This option allows users to specify the mode to be used for the new directories. Choices for modes can be found in chmod(1).
With this option, rfmkdir creates dirname by creating all the non-existing parent directories first.
