Creating a directory

You can create a directory on the device as shown in the following code example:  

<cfset newdir = “myNewDir” />
<cfset dirobj=cfclient.file.createDirectory(newdir)>

You can specify both absolute and relative path for the new directory. By default, the directory will be created on the device’s memory card.
