Episode 129: Monitoring Utilities
The Main Topic:
- Making recursive directories. If you need to create a directory inside of another directory (or two, or three) that don’t exist, you can create the entire hierarchy of directories with one command by using the -p option with the mkdir command. Example:
mkdir -p /foo/bar/foo2/bar2
This will create a directory named bar2, in a directory named foo2, in a directory named bar, in a directory named foo. If any of those directories did not exist at the time of command invocation, they will be created by the command. Much easier than using the GUI for this same task.
