Create several directories?


excuse me, Linux newbey here,
I am wanting to create several directories, like /tmp/user /usr/tmp/user and so on,
should I just use mkdir or what should I use.

The questions is not very clearly formulated...

Make the example a bit more exhaustive?


Cheers,

Yes, "mkdir" should do the job just fine.

Just type something like:

mkdir /dir1/subdir2 /dir2 /dir3 /dir4 /dir5

and all of them would be created at the same time.
