       mknod - make block or character special files

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

       Create the special file NAME of the given TYPE.

       -Z, --context=CONTEXT

       Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

       -m, --mode=MODE
	      set permission mode (as in chmod), not a=rw - umask

       --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
