16 /* All the directories that Exim ever creates for itself are within the spool
17 directory as defined by spool_directory. We are prepared to create as many as
18 necessary from that directory downwards, inclusive. However, directory creation
19 can also be required in appendfile and sieve filters. The making function
20 therefore has a parent argument, below which the new directories are to go. It
21 can be NULL if the name is absolute.
22
23 If a non-root uid has been specified for exim, and we are currently running as
24 root, ensure the directory is owned by the non-root id if the parent is the
25 spool directory.
26
27 Arguments:
28 parent parent directory name; if NULL the name must be absolute
29 name directory name within the parent that we want
30 mode mode for the new directory
31 panic if TRUE, panic on failure
32
33 Returns: panic on failure if panic is set; otherwise return FALSE;
34 TRUE on success.
