mkdir MS-DOS Command

Type: Internal (2.0 and later)

Syntax:

MKDIR (MD) [d:]path

Purpose: Creates a new subdirectory.

Discussion

If you do not specifically enter a path designation, the directory will be created as a subdirectory within the current directory.

There is no limit to the number of directories you can create. However, the maximum length of any single path specification is 63 characters, including backslashes. For more information on using MKDIR and other fixed-disk commands, refer to Chapter 3, Using Fixed Disks.

Examples

To create the new subdirectory LETTERS within the existing directory NEWSALES on drive A, enter md a:\newsales\letters

If you are already working in the NEWSALES directory, you can create the new subdirectory LETTERS within that directory by entering

md letters
