Name

creat - create a file with a particular mode  

Syntax

creat filename octalmode  

Description

This creates a file in a single system call, rather than as a create followed by a chmod. In addition to basic function, this may be of use for creating "lock files".  

Arguments

filename - a filename, either relative to the current working directory, or fully specified.

octalmode - The mode that the file will be created in. This is a simple octal number. (Symbolic names such as used by chmod are not supported). The values for this are the same as chmod(1).  

Example

$ creat libcitr.a.lock 000

chmod(1), creat(2), flock(1)
