Why not use File::Path?

$ ls foo ls: foo: No such file or directory $ perl -MFile::Path -e 'mkpath "foo/bar/baz"' $ ls -d foo/bar/baz foo/bar/baz/

Update: Err, forget it. It's already been pointed out.

    Because of this line in File::Path's POD:

    It returns a list of all directories (including intermediates, determined using the Unix '/' separator) created.

    That raises a concern that I'd have to pass mkpath a UNIX-style path -- the snippet I posted will accept any form supported by File::Spec::Functions. I like that better.
