int main() {
    char* dirname = "mydirectory"; // Replace with desired directory name
    int result = mkdir(dirname, S_IRWXU | S_IRWXG | S_IRWXO); // Create directory with read, write, and execute permissions for owner, group, and others
    if (result == 0) {
        printf("Directory '%s' created successfully.\n", dirname);
    } else {
        printf("Error creating directory '%s'.\n", dirname);
