So, I was surprised to find out that Dir.mkdir will not create all
folders in a path when more than just the last level does not exist.
Example: Dir.mkdir(’/f1/f2/f3’) will not create /f3 when /f2 does not
exist. I expected it to make both /f2 and /f3 to get the job done. I
expected it because the language I used most previously did do that.
After some googling I’m not finding any elegant solutions.
Obviously I could split the path at / and iterate through each folder
name in sequence with an Exists? and mkdir follow up if needed.
Is that really the only option? To do this manually?
