Summary: A program used for creating the device files in /dev

This package contains the MAKEDEV script, which makes it easier to create
and maintain the files in the /dev directory. /dev directory files
correspond to a particular device supported by Linux (USB, parallel
or serial ports, scanners, sound cards, hard/optical/tape drives, etc.)
and interface with the drivers in the kernel.
