g_file_make_directory (
  GFile* file,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error


Creates a directory. Note that this will only create a child directory of the immediate parent directory of the path or URI given by the GFile. To recursively create directories, see g_file_make_directory_with_parents(). This function will fail if the parent directory does not exist, setting error to G_IO_ERROR_NOT_FOUND. If the file system doesn’t support creating directories, this function will fail, setting error to G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED.

For a local GFile the newly created directory will have the default (current) ownership and permissions of the current process.

If cancellable is not NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation was cancelled, the error G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be returned.



Type: GCancellable

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE on successful creation, FALSE otherwise.
