dosCreateFolder(string PathName)

Creates the folder specified by PathName

If necessary, any ancestor folders that do not exist will be automatically created. An ancestor folder is a folder that contains the target folder to be created or that contains a subfolder that could also be considered an ancestor. For example, if "C:\My1\My2\My3" is requested and "C:\My1" does not exist, "C:\My1" is created, "C:\My1\My2" is created and finally "C:\My1\My2\My3" is created. 

Parameter :

PathName : A string specifying the drive, and location of the folder to be created using a pathname. You may end this string with a backslash "\" on Windows or a colon ":" on MacOS but it is not required. For example, "C:\MyFolder" on Windows or "My Mac:My Folder" on MacOS. 

Return Value : An integer indicating whether the method was successful or not. If 1 is returned, the method was successful. If 0 is returned, the method was not successful, in which case dosGetLastError() should be called to determine the cause of the error. 

Possible Returned Error Codes via dosGetLastError() :
10013 : Invalid drive name. 
10015 : Folder expected. A reference to a file was given in the pathname. For example, if "C:\MyDoc.txt" is a file and "C:\MyDoc.txt\MyFolder" is passed in the PathName parameter, this error would be generated. 
10020 : Drive is write disabled. 
10021 : Folder already exists. 
10032 : Folder syntax incorrect (ie: “C:\<>Bad”)
