problem with return function value in perl


$val = mkdir $directory, 755

does't create directory but return as value '0'

$val = 0 means true o false?

should be
Code:
$val = mkdir $directory, 0755;
assuming $directory is defined beforehand.

true = 1

I'd use this
Code:
mkdir($directory, 0755) or die "mkdir failed: msg was $!\n";
