EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       The  arcmkdir  command creates directories on grid storage elements and indexing services.
       If the parent directory does not exist  and  -p  is  not  specified,  then  arcmkdir  will
       probably  fail,  but  it depends on the protocol. The permissions on the new directory are
       the default of the server, or if the protocol requires  them  to  be  specified  then  the
       directory  is  only  readable/writable/searchable  by the user (the equivalent of 700 on a
       file system).

       If url starts from '@', the remaining argument is assumed to be a path  to  a  local  file
       containing  a  list  of  URLs,  one per line.  In this case arcmkdir performs like it were
       called multiple times - once for every URL.

       Depending on the installed libraries (check with -P ),  the  following  protocols  may  be
       used:  file   (file://   prefix   may   be omitted), http, https, httpg, ftp, gsiftp, srm,
       root.

FILES

       ~/.arc/client.conf
              Some options can be given default values by  specifying  them  in  the  ARC  client
              configuration  file.  By using the --conffile option a different configuration file
              can be used than the default.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       X509_USER_PROXY
              The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless the proxy is in
              a non-standard location.

       ARC_LOCATION
              The  location  where  ARC  is  installed  can be specified by this variable. If not
              specified the install location will be determined from  the  path  to  the  command
              being  executed,  and  if  this  fails a WARNING will be given stating the location
              which will be used.

       ARC_PLUGIN_PATH
              The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable.  Multiple  locations
              can  be  specified  by separating them by : (; in Windows). The default location is
              $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).

EXAMPLE
