       parrot_mkalloc - create a directory with a space allocation


       parrot_mkalloc <path> <size>


       parrot_mkalloc creates a new directory with a space allocation.  As the name suggests, the
       command only runs correctly inside of the Parrot virtual  file  system,  on  file  servers
       where space allocation is enabled.

       The  path  argument gives the new directory to create, and the size argument indicates how
       large the space allocation should be.  The latter may use metric units such as  K,  M,  B,
       etc to indicate kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, and so forth.


        -h    Show help text.


       On success, returns zero.  On failure, returns non-zero.  If the command is attempted on a
       filesystem that does not support space allocation, it will give the following error:

               parrot_mkalloc: This filesystem does not support allocations.


       To create a space allocation of ten gigabytes on a Chirp server:

               % parrot_run bash
               % cd /chirp/
               % parrot_mkalloc bigdir 10G
               % exit
