makepath


Purpose
Create a new directory including its parents if necessary.
Synopsis
procedure makepath(dirname:string|text)
procedure makepath(dirname:string|text,last_is_file:boolean)
Arguments
dirname 
The name and path of the directory to be created
last_is_file 
If true, the last component of the path is ignored
Further information
1. This routine creates the directory dirname as well as intermediate directories in the path if necessary. For instance, makepath("/tmp/dir1/dir2") will create "/tmp" then "/tmp/dir1" before "/tmp/dir1/dir2" if these directories are missing.
2. As opposed to makedir, this routine does not return an error condition if the path already exists.
3. The second form of this procedure can be used when the argument is a path to a file in order to create the directory in which the file can be created. For instance, makepath("/tmp/dir1/myfile",true) will create "/tmp/dir1" such that file /tmp/dir1/myfile" can be created.
