mktemp


SYNOPSIS
       mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

DESCRIPTION
       Create a temporary file or directory, safely, and print its name.  TEM-
       PLATE must contain at least 3 consecutive `X's in last  component.   If
       TEMPLATE is not specified, use tmp.XXXXXXXXXX, and --tmpdir is implied.
       Files are created u+rw, and directories  u+rwx,  minus  umask  restric-
       tions.

       -d, --directory
              create a directory, not a file

       -u, --dry-run
              do not create anything; merely print a name (unsafe)

       -q, --quiet
              suppress diagnostics about file/dir-creation failure

       --suffix=SUFF
              append  SUFF  to  TEMPLATE.   SUFF must not contain slash.  This
              option is implied if TEMPLATE does not end in X.

       --tmpdir[=DIR]
              interpret TEMPLATE relative to DIR.  If DIR  is  not  specified,
              use  $TMPDIR if set, else /tmp.  With this option, TEMPLATE must
              not be an absolute name.  Unlike with -t, TEMPLATE  may  contain
              slashes, but mktemp creates only the final component

       -p DIR use DIR as a prefix; implies -t [deprecated]

       -t     interpret  TEMPLATE as a single file name component, relative to
              a directory: $TMPDIR, if set; else the directory  specified  via
              -p; else /tmp [deprecated]

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
