Check whether mkdir() is mkdir or _mkdir, and whether it takes one
or two arguments.
This macro can define HAVE_MKDIR, HAVE__MKDIR, and
MKDIR_TAKES_ONE_ARG, which are expected to be used as follows:
# if MKDIR_TAKES_ONE_ARG
/* MinGW32 */
# define mkdir(a, b) mkdir(a)
# if HAVE__MKDIR
/* plain Windows 32 */
# define mkdir(a, b) _mkdir(a)
# error "Don't know how to create a directory on this system."
AC_CACHE_CHECK([whether mkdir takes one argument],
# include <unistd.h>
], [mkdir (".");],
if test x"$ac_cv_mkdir_takes_one_arg" = xyes; then
[Define if mkdir takes only one argument.])
dnl I have not implemented the following suggestion because I don't have
dnl access to such a broken environment to test the macro. So I'm just
dnl appending the comments here in case you have, and want to fix
dnl AC_FUNC_MKDIR that way.
dnl |Thomas E. Dickey (email@example.com) said:
dnl | it doesn't cover the problem areas (compilers that mistreat mkdir
dnl | may prototype it in dir.h and dirent.h, for instance).
dnl | Would it be sufficient to check for these headers and #include
dnl | them in the AC_TRY_COMPILE block? (and is AC_HEADER_DIRENT
dnl | suitable for this?)
dnl | I think that might be a good starting point (with the set of recommended
dnl | ifdef's and includes for AC_HEADER_DIRENT, of course).
