    Exclamation Highlight me on this

    I am using UNIX operating system and I know that the command mkfs is used for making a new file system on a device. But I recently came across a command namely mknod. But I could not get the command syntax and usage of this command. Can someone highlight me the syntax of this UNIX command?
