NAME
     mknod - build special file

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/mknod name [ c ] [ b ] major minor

DESCRIPTION
     Mknod makes a directory entry and corresponding i-node for a
     special file.  The first argument is the name of the  entry.
     The  second  is  b if the special file is block-type (disks,
     tape) or c if it is  character-type  (other  devices).   The
     last  two  arguments are numbers specifying the major device
     type and the minor device (e.g. unit, drive,  or  line  num-
     ber).

     The  assignment  of major device numbers is specific to each
     system.  They have to be dug out of the system  source  file
     conf.c.
