pd isn't really aware of the console, so you need to send a message to the GUI:

You could probably use Tcl's mkdir and send it to the GUI:

[file mkidr /path/to/mynewfolder(



Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice, it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith
