mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

       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-

       -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

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

              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]
