- the directory to create
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.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in the
ARC client configuration file. By using the
option a different configuration file can be used than the default.
The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless
the proxy is in a non-standard 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.
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).
