Often we use to create a folder in a directory which contains lot of sub directories. When we try to create a directory, we will get the below error message if that directory is already present.

mkdir: Failed to make directory “test”; File exists

I want to know how to hide the above error message and to create folder only if its not already exist. If its already exist then it should ignore that folder.

Use -p option with mkdir command. This will omit if that directory is already present.

mkdir -p dir

It will not threw error message even that directory is already present. It will ignore that directory.
