You can also use MD instead of MKDIR. If you simply type "MKDIR PATHNAME" the directory will be created in the momentaneous directory. Means: You create a subdirectory. In pure DOS the directory name must not be longer than 8 letters. MKDIR is a command internal to and needs no other file in order to work.


mkdir c:\test mkdir c:\test\testx or if you are in c:\test: mkdir test2 (creates c:\test\test2)
