30.10.34 Filesystem operation functions [fs.op.funcs] Create directories [fs.op.create_directories]

bool create_directories(const path& p); bool create_directories(const path& p, error_code& ec) noexcept;

Effects: Establishes the postcondition by calling create_­directory() for any element of p that does not exist.

Postconditions: is_­directory(p).

Returns: true if a new directory was created, otherwise false. The signature with argument ec returns false if an error occurs.

Throws: As specified in [fs.err.report].

Complexity: O(n) where n is the number of elements of p that do not exist.
