perldoc -f mkdir
    mkdir FILENAME,MODE
            Creates the directory specified by FILENAME, with
            permissions specified by MODE (as modified by umask). If
            it succeeds it returns TRUE, otherwise it returns FALSE
            and sets `$!' (errno).

mkdir makes a dir, this works in NT and UNIX

mkdir("new_dir",777);

777 == 01411, you may have meant 0777
