[system] from the MOTEX library
(unfortunately there's no [shell] on windows)

it's quite basic and does no error report, but it works (still). thanks 
to PD now admitting backslashes can be used easily if used carefully

try something like [dir D:\Temp > D:\dir_result.txt(
or (in your case) [mkdir D:\testdir(

(or any other harddrive letter or directory.
"D" is just my personal data partition,
so i'm not messing around on my system partition)
