mktemp – create a temporary file or directory




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 a slash. This
option is implied if TEMPLATE does not end in X

-p DIR, –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

-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

output version information and exit
