Create custom user's directory with simple script


Hi forum,

I need to write a simple script that runs a few commands in an order. Let's just say that this sth like a cmd file:

./cmd [var]

In the var section I want to add a username which automatically creates a directory somewhere. The fisrt attempt was sth like this:

Code:
mkdir /ntprofiles/%u
hoping that the %u var will be replaced with the username.... Ofcourse, that didn't work...

Any hints?

Close. This would have done it:
Code:
mkdir /ntprofiles/$1
