[1mint dpns_mkdir (const char *[4m[22mpath[24m[1m, mode_t [4m[22mmode[24m[1m)[0m

[1mdpns_mkdir [22mcreates a new DPNS directory in the name server.

An entry is created in the name server database and the directory's
owner ID is set to the effective user ID of the requestor. The group
ID of the directory is set to the effective group ID of the requestor
or is taken from the parent directory if the latter has the [1mS_ISGID [22mbit

The access permission bits for the directory are taken from [4mmode[24m, then
all bits set in the requestor's file mode creation mask are cleared
(see [1mdpns_umask[22m(3)). The [1mS_ISGID[22m, [1mS_ISUID [22mand [1mS_ISVTX [22mbits are
silently cleared.

[4mpath[24m specifies the logical pathname relative to the current DPNS
directory or the full DPNS pathname.

This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the
operation failed. In the latter case, [1mserrno [22mis set appropriately.

[1mENOENT [22mA component of [4mpath[24m prefix does not exist or [4mpath[24m is a
null pathname.

[1mEACCES [22mSearch permission is denied on a component of the [4mpath[0m
prefix or write permission on the parent directory is

[1mEFAULT [4m[22mpath[24m is a NULL pointer.

[1mEEXIST [4m[22mpath[24m exists already.

[1mENOTDIR [22mA component of [4mpath[24m prefix is not a directory.

[1mENOSPC [22mThe name server database is full.

[1mENAMETOOLONG [22mThe length of [4mpath[24m exceeds [1mCA_MAXPATHLEN [22mor the length of
a [4mpath[24m component exceeds [1mCA_MAXNAMELEN[22m.

[1mSENOSHOST [22mHost unknown.

[1mSENOSSERV [22mService unknown.

[1mSECOMERR [22mCommunication error.

[1mENSNACT [22mName server is not running or is being shutdown.
