MKTEMP(1)                        User Commands                       MKTEMP(1)



NAME
       mktemp - create a temporary file or directory

SYNOPSIS
       mktemp [OPTION]... [TEMPLATE]

DESCRIPTION
       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

       --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
