MAKEDEV.local -- create site-specific device special files
MAKEDEV.local [-fMs] [-m mknod] [-p pax] [-t mtree] {all | site-specific-argument} [...]
MAKEDEV.local is used to create site-specific device special files. Each argument may be the word all or a site-specific argument. By default, there are no valid site-specific arguments, and the all argument has no effect; This may be changed by editing the script. The script is in /dev/MAKEDEV.local. Devices are created in the current working directory; in normal use, MAKEDEV.local should be invoked with /dev as the current working directory. Supported options for MAKEDEV.local are the same as for MAKEDEV(8).
/dev special device files directory /dev/MAKEDEV script that invokes MAKEDEV.local with the all argu- ment. /dev/MAKEDEV.local script described in this man page

The MAKEDEV.local command appeared in 4.2BSD. Handling of the same com- mand line options as MAKEDEV(8), and the use of MAKEDEV(8) as a function library, was added in NetBSD 5.0.
The relationship between MAKEDEV.local and MAKEDEV(8) is complex: + If MAKEDEV(8) is invoked with the all or local argument, then it will invoke MAKEDEV.local as a child process, with options similar to those that were originally passed to MAKEDEV(8), and with the all argument. + MAKEDEV.local uses shell functions defined in MAKEDEV(8). This is done by loading MAKEDEV(8) using the shell ``.'' command, with the MAKEDEV_AS_LIBRARY variable set (to inform MAKEDEV(8) that it should behave as a function library, not as an independent program).
