NAME
       MAKEDEV - create system and device special files

SYNOPSIS
       MAKEDEV name ...

DESCRIPTION
       The  shell  script MAKEDEV, found in the ``/dev'' directory, is used to
       create the common special files.	 See special(8) for  a	more  complete
       discussion of special files.

       MAKEDEV	takes any number of device names as arguments, where the names
       are the common abbreviation for the  device.   There  are  two  special
       devices,	 ``std''  and  ``local''.   The	 former	 creates  the standard
       devices for the architecture.  The latter is for	 devices  specific  to
       the local site, and executes the shell file ``MAKEDEV.local''.

       The  VAX	 supports  the following devices.  Where a device name is fol‐
       lowed by a hash sign (``#''), the hash sign must be replaced by a  unit
       number.

       std	 the  standard	devices (console, crl, csa1, csa2, drum, fd/*,
		 floppy, kUmem, klog, kmem, mem, null, stderr, stdin,  stdout,
