mknod (ULTRIX)							mknod (ULTRIX)

       mknod - Creates a special file

       Standard C Library (libc.a)

       System V Compatibility Library (libsys5.a)

       Requires	 the  sys/stat.h  and sys/types.h header files. The Standard C
       Library changes the declaration of dev from int to dev_t. Digital  UNIX
       sets  the group ID of the new file to the group ID of its parent direc‐
       tory where as System V sets group ID to the effective group ID  of  the
       creating process. Adds errno value of ENAMETOOLONG

       Digital UNIX provides the libsys5.a library to allow you to use library
       functions that are compatible with System V  library  functions.	  This
       library	contains  functions for those libc functions whose behavior is
       incompatible with POSIX or X/Open standards.  The  ULTRIX  system  also
       provides	 a  System  V compatibility library, libcV.a, which supplies a
       number of features similar to those that libsys5.a provides.  The  most
       significant  behavior  of the functions in this library is the compati‐
       bility with System V nonblocked signals.	 For  more  information	 about
       the  System  V  (SVID-2)	 features in Digital UNIX, please refer to the
       System V Compatibility User's Guide.

       Supports passing of dev as an int, instead dev_t.
