fmkdir
- creates (makes) a directory

File Input/Output functions
(AFL 2.70)


SYNTAX fmkdir( ''dirname'' )
RETURNS NUMBER
FUNCTION Creates (makes) a directory.

"dirname" specifies path of the directory to be created. Please note that this function creates only ONE directory at a time. So if you want to create nested directory tree you have to call it multiple times, for example to create C:MyDirectoryMySubDirectory folder you have to call it twice:

fmkdir( "C:\\MyDirectory" );
fmkdir( "C:\\MyDirectory\\MySubDirectory" );

Note also that it is safe to call it even if directory already exists (then no change to file system is applied)

Returns TRUE if directory successfully created, FALSE otherwise
