making parent directories
Message ID:

I was writing a script in which I needed to make
a directory "at depth", without having the parent directories
created yet.  For example:

use warnings;

mkdir("1/2/3", 0777) || die "cannot mkdir 1/2/3: $!";

Is there a way to deal with this without resorting to a 
system call?

In bash it's easy,
mkdir -p 1/2/3

So is there some way perl deals with this?
