    There is no create function for eth , do you want to create a account? Aug 30 '17 at 7:42

I think you need to load personal library --rpcapi "eth,net,web3,personal" and i don't thin using --datadir="" is a good idea.

 geth --port 5000 --networkid 58342   --rpc --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr --rpccorsdomain "*" --rpcapi "eth,net,web3,personal" --testnet

Try to use personal.newAccount('passphrase')

and use rpcapi="eth,personal,miner,web3"

(1) First start your geth
geth --port 5000 --networkid 58342 --datadir="" --rpc --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr --rpccorsdomain "*" --rpcapi "eth,personal,net,web3" --testnet

(2) Now Open Ethereum's Javascript console
geth attach ipc

(3) Create new address
