I need to be able to create directories recursively.
Suppose I have the following directory structure that needs to be created /release/projecta/backup_011009/uk

The directory /release/projecta exists, but the path backup_011009/uk does nto exist.

How can I use mkdir to recursively create  all directories?

Thanks in advance
