creating folders

I have a problem using the following code

sub write
      my ($fileName,$data)=@_;
      open (TOFILE,"+>".$PATH.$fileName) || die "archivo -- $fileName -- no existe en $ENV{PWD} ";;
      print TOFILE $data;
      close TOFILE;      

if i execute my function like this:
write ("/text.txt","test data");  # it works fine, it creates text.txt if it wouldnt exists

but if i execute the function:
wirte ("/folder/test/text2.txt","more data");  # it crashes, because  "folder" doesnt exists on my main path and also "test" folder doesnt exists

so, my question is... is there an easy way to create necessary folders if they dont exist on my path??
