mh-mkstemp: create a temporary file
mkstemp - create a temporary file
- /usr/libexec/nmh/mkstemp [-directory directory] [-prefix prefix] [-suffix suffix] [-version] [-help]
The -directory switch specifies a directory in which to create the file.
The -prefix switch specifies an initial part, before the 6 characters, of the file name.
The -suffix switch is only supported on platforms that provide the mkstemps(3) library function. It specifies a suffix to appear after the 6 characters; if it should begin with a special character such as a period, that must be explicit in suffix.
EXIT STATUSIf mkstemp successfully creates the temporary file, it prints the file name on standard output and exits with status 0. On failure, it prints a diagnostic message on standard error and exits with status -1.
