       mktemp - create a temporary file or directory

       mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

       Create a temporary file or directory, safely, and print its name.  TEMPLATE must contain at least 3 consecutive
       'X's in last component.  If TEMPLATE is not specified, use tmp.XXXXXXXXXX, and --tmpdir is implied.

       -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]
