C/C++ Create Directory

We can type “mkdir dirname” command at konsole to create dirname directory. If we can create a directory from C/C++ we can use command mkdir(path, mode) to create directory. Example :

#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

main()
{

    if(mkdir("pathname",0777)==-1)//creating a directory
    {
        printf("error create directory\n");
        exit(1);
    }
    else
        printf("success create directory\n");

}

Save code with name main.c and compile code with command :

gcc main.c -o createdir

type  ./createdir at konsole to running program. When you running this program, program createdir will create pathname folder.
