       mknod - make special file

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

       The  command  makes  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 argu‐
       ments are numbers specifying the major device type and the minor device
       (for example, unit, drive, or line number).

       The  assignment	of  major  device  numbers is specific to each system.
       These numbers are obtained from the system source file conf.c.

       The command can also be used to create  fifo's,	also  known  as	 named
       pipes, (second case in the Syntax section above).
