       mknod - make block or character special files


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


       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     set the SELinux security context to default type

              like  -Z,  or if CTX is specified then set the SELinux or SMACK security context to

       --help display this help and exit

              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.
