    SYNOPSIS

           mknod [OPTION]... NAME TYPE [MAJOR MINOR]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Create the special file NAME of the given TYPE.
    
           Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options
           too.
    
           -m, --mode=MODE
                  set file permission bits to MODE, not a=rw - umask
    
           -Z, --context=CTX
                  set the SELinux security context of NAME to CTX
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           Both MAJOR and MINOR must be specified when TYPE is b,  c,  or  u,  and
           they  must be omitted when TYPE is p.  If MAJOR or MINOR begins with 0x
           or 0X, it is interpreted as hexadecimal; otherwise, if it  begins  with
           0, as octal; otherwise, as decimal.  TYPE may be:
    
           b      create a block (buffered) special file
    
           c, u   create a character (unbuffered) special file
    
           p      create a FIFO
    
           NOTE:  your  shell  may  have  its  own version of mknod, which usually
           supersedes the version described here.  Please refer  to  your  shell's
           documentation for details about the options it supports.
