Making multiple directories

Hi, I would like to know what is the better method to use if I want to create multiple directories.
By multiple directories I mean I want to create something like "c:\a\b\c" if  "c:\a" does not exists.

The CreateDir() function is not working if the "a" dir is not existing. Anyone know a function able to do it?

Russell LibbySoftware Engineer, Advisory Commented:

ForceDirectories can be used to create the multi-level directory structure.

function ForceDirectories(Dir: string): Boolean;

Description

DOS and Windows only allow directories to be created one at a time. For example, to create the C:\APPS\SALES\LOCAL directory, the APPS and SALES directories must exist before the LOCAL directory can be created. Use ForceDirectories to create a directory and all parent directories that do not already exist.

ForceDirectories returns True if it successfully creates all necessary directories, False if it could not create a needed directory.

Note:      Do not call ForceDirectories with an empty string. Doing so causes ForceDirectories to raise an exception.

You will just need to include the FileCtrl unit in your uses clause.

Regards,
Russell
